We are thrilled to see such a great turnout for our very first Education Contest! This year’s theme was “God’s Gifts in My Life” and entries were submitted in the categories of essay and art. Entries in Division II (6th, 7th, and 8th graders) were submitted last Friday, February 13th and were judged on February 20th. Our judges were non-CDA volunteers that had backgrounds in education.
Many hours were spent poring over 120+ entries in both essay and art. Ultimately, the entries were whittled down to six 1st and 2nd place winners in the essay category and two 1st place winners in the art category.
Thank you to Pam Kay who hosted the judging session at a dinner in her lovely home. And many thanks to our judges, Steve and Linda Crabtree, Faris and Sana Auro, and Jerry Kay. We really appreciate the hard work you put into making this contest a success!
Winners will soon be announced at an assembly at Santa Sophia Academy. Below are photos of the judges in action:
