The Cesar Chavez Essay Contest is an annual essay writing contest that challenges children to reflect on the life work of Cesar Chavez and how what he stood for relates to current events. This year there were over 120 essays submitted with topics ranging from social inequities to Dung Beetles. Two review panels of community members, the School District Superintendent, School Board members, and district staff delighted in reading the thoughts of our students and future leaders. The essays were insightful and meaningful.
Congratulations to this year’s essay contest winners!
