Students are asked (optional) to write a 400 word minimum essay on an issue impacting their community. The students came up with the following topic list:
Violence in Communities
Lack of Local Financial Institutions (issue w/ currency exchanges, lack of local banks and credit unions)
Racial/Ethnic/Community Enslavement – How do our communities and our race continue to keep ourselves down (i.e. how do we live to the stereotypes about us; about physical appearances; stereotypes about ‘being white’ and academic achievement)?
The contest is optional and will be introduced this week at the After School meeting. Please encourage your student to participate. The more students that participate, the bigger the prizes for the finalists will be.
