Well, it’s safe to say that Pennsylvania was adequately represented in this year’s Discovery Educator Network National Poster Contest. Today, I visited the two national winners in the grades 6-8 category, and I only had to cross the Susquehanna River to do so. Rose Ortiz and Jajaira Soto-Ramos designed two really powerful and creative posters and took home the top prize.
We had the awards ceremony at Rowland School in the Harrisburg City School District where Rose and Jajaira are classmates. Martha Perez, assistant principal and Discovery Educator, joined us along with Rose and Jajaira’s parents, Mary Wills (Technology Teacher)and Nancy Linder (Public Relations Specialist for HBGSD).
Thanks to everyone at Rowland for a great day and congratulations again, Rose and Jajaira!
