3rd Grade Arizona Postcard Contest

The 3rd grade Arizona postcard contest has been very successful, thanks to Dr. Kristen Rex who spoke at our April meeting. Students were asked to create a postcard to show what they had learned about Arizona (5C's, 22 tribes, History, Geography from prehistoric times to now). Over 700 students participated and 6 were selected from around the state. Dr. Rex has been organizing the program and celebrating the winners. Each student  received an award and pizza party for their class hosted by the Arizona Historical Society with donations from The Historical League and Schneider Electric.

Winners include: Garrett W. Twin Peaks K-8 Marana, AZ

Naomi F. Harvest Preparatory Academy San Luis, AZ
