Nine of our 8th grade French students attending this year's trip to Québec applied for the ACIS tour company's travel scholarships. The theme of this year's scholarship contest was "The World in My World" whereby students were asked to write an essay, produce an artwork, or submit a photo that addressed this theme. There were two scholarships available for the middle school level: 1st prize, a $1000 travel scholarship; and 2nd prize, a $500 travel scholarship. We are proud to announce that McCarthy's French Students took home both prizes!
Jessica Bejar-Garcia won the $1000 1st prize for her beautiful artwork pictured here and Praneeth Abburi won the $500 2nd prize for his excellent essay. Congratulations! The French trip also receives $500 from the tour company for sponsoring the winning scholarship submissions - so we all win thanks to those students who took the time and made the effort to apply. Congratulations!
