Three months after their afternoon of presentations to distinguished judges – here’s our February coverage, with video – Madison Middle School‘s “Project Citizen” winners are back from statewide competition in Olympia. The 8th-graders’ teacher/coach Starr McKittrick shares photos and this report:
Madison Middle School received an “Outstanding” rating with their project “Fund Our Futures,” which focused on education-funding issues in Washington State. They did extremely well for the complexity of their topic and showed a depth of knowledge that surpassed many projects presented by other groups. They were called by one judge, who also is a member of the Washington State Legislature, “an inspiration.” I am very proud of them and their performance.
