PRODUCE LOTS OF WINNERS
Wow! A lot of Nebraska kids deserve kudos:
Jenna Lynn Taylor, a fifth-grader at Alice Buffeett Magnet Middle School in the Omaha Public Schools, won a statewide essay contest sponsored by American Mothers, Inc., for her essay, "What My Mother Means to Me," judged best of 110 entries.
Elkhorn High School's Math Quiz Bowl team won a contest against 60 teams from Iowa and Nebraska at Iowa Western Community College.
Elkhorn's team also won the statewide Economic Challenge held at the Champions Club in Lincoln, winning the most points in macroecnomics, microeconomics, international economics and the quiz bowl.
I would like to read the winning essay "What My Mother Means To Me", if possible.. These reports also speak well of Elkhorn Schools, students and parents.Post a Comment
