National Essay Contest Winner - Kiara Witt!!!
Congratulations to Rio Hondo 8th grader Kiara Witt, one of three winners chosen across the nation for the StudySync ”Blast Out Your Vote" essay contest!
Students were asked to write a 200-500 word argumentative essay citing evidence to answer the question: “If you could vote in the 2016 election, which presidential candidate would you vote for and why?” Entries were reviewed by the StudySync Curriculum team and contest judges considered adherence to the rubric, overall writing skills, and creativity when evaluating each submission.
El Monte City School District and Rio Hondo School are pleased to recognize Kiara Witt as an outstanding writer and encourage all students to diligently research and analyze important issues. Special thanks to Kiara’s 8th grade teacher Pilar DeLeon for participating in the contest nominating Kiara.
