SWH Scholars Bowl Teams Show Greatness
Coloring Contest Winner @ PES
It wasn’t the lottery, or a National Clearing House award, but a Plains student was pretty excited when she received word this week
that she had won first place in the third grade division coloring contest for the National Woman’s Christian Temperance Union.
Michelle Acosta entered the contest along with the rest of her class at Plains Elementary School back in March. In May, she was awarded first place in county and then in state. Her “Team Up Against Drugs”
coloring sheet was then forwarded to the National Judging Committee. There, among 3rd grade winners from 12 different states, Acosta’s work was judged for originality, appropriateness of colors, neatness and accuracy, and instant appeal. SoWeKan WCTU Educational Director, Patricia Reimer, delivered the check for $30 to Michelle, along with her congratulations for a job well done. Reimer commented, “It is always difficult to know what will appeal to the national judges. Michelle did an outstanding job on her coloring sheet . . . some of the best I’ve seen. I’m so thrilled that the national judges felt the same.” Overall, students in the state of Kansas won the most awards in the national contest for 2017.
