Legacy Project - "Listen to a Life" Essay Contest
Students in Howard-Suamico's Gifted and Talented program recently submitted work to the Legacy Project's, "Listen to a Life" essay contest. As part of the contest, students interviewed someone over the age of 50 and wrote an essay that captured a snapshot of their life where they learned a lesson.
Students then used PicCollage to create their essay into a poster which was printed for them as a keepsake as well as one to give to the special person interviewed.
CONGRATULATIONS to Madi, a Bay Harbor second grader, who was named the 2015 Grand Prize winner out of thousands of entries nationwide. Click here to read more about Madi's prize winning entry!
