Writing Contest Winners
Congratulations to our Writing Contest Winners! Mrs. Loughborough's third graders entered the Sixteen on Center Art & Writing Contest, held annually by the Aquidneck Land Trust. The purpose of the contest is to promote the importance and value of a healthy environment to the youth of Aquidneck Island.
We are excited to announce that we have THREE winners this year in the writing category. Bobby C-M. won 1st place, Grave V. won 2nd place and Gwen M. won 3rd place! The contest is open to all local students, from kindergarten through 12th grade, and there were over 300 entries this year. Schools submit artistic or written representations of their students’ favorite island vistas, which are then judged by a panel of Aquidneck Land Trust judges. Awards are presented at the Aquidneck Land Trust Annual Meeting on February 1, 2018. In addition, the school of each first-place winner receives a check to support its own environmental education curriculum.
Nice work Bobby, Grace, and Gwen! We are very proud of our students for their hard work and creativity.
