Fifth graders recognized in writing and arts contest
Two Boyce Middle School fifth graders were recently recognized for their work in the fourth annual Mahatma Gandhi Creative Writing and Art Contest. The event was conducted as part of the 2020 Mahatma Gandhi Birthday Celebration at Carnegie Mellon University.
Suhavi Singh, who placed in the top five, was recognized with the book, “Ghandi’s Search for the Perfect Diet: Eating with the World in Mind.” Iris Wang, whose artwork earned Honorable Mention, received a backpack for her efforts.
The contest, open to middle school students ages 10-14, asked young writers and artists to reflect on a time when they served their community in efforts to build peace and what actions they might take in the future that mirror Gandhi's commitment to serving communities, building peace, and action. Submissions could include creative writing, poetry, or a creative artwork.
