Reading is a wonderful tool for life! So EPPLA motivates children to read with a Poetry and Essay Reading Contest. There were twelve finalists from three elementary schools: Douglass, Zavala, and Hart.
The Poetry Contest Winners are:
- 1st Place: Raúl Pichardo
- 2nd Place: Ari Valero
- 3th Place: Alondra Gonzales
Twelve students had to overcome their nervousness at the time of their exhibition. That is an important step in learning to speak in front of audiences.
The contest was a great opportunity for the families to come together and share in this experience. More than fifty people were in the event. All the participants had a gift for participating in the contest.
