(01/06/2020) As part of October’s National Bullying Prevention campaign, Anoka-Hennepin held its 16th annual kindness poster contest.
The district invited students at all grade-levels to submit their best artwork for the competition. Elementary and middle schools selected one winning poster for each grade level and each high school also selected a winner to advance to the district-level judging.
This year’s theme was: “We are kindness rock stars!” Over 100 posters were voted on by staff at the Educational Service Center (ESC) on Nov. 20 and this year’s winners are:
Olivia Landmark, kindergarten, Monroe Elementary School - Mathematics, Science and Children’s Engineering.
Josephina Toth, first grade, Sand Creek Elementary School.
Nora Fandrich, second grade, Oxbow Creek Elementary School.
Avrie Siedschlag, third grade, Sand Creek Elementary School.
Saee More, fourth grade, Sand Creek Elementary School.
Grace Lowell, fifth grade, Sand Creek Elementary School.
Emily Nguyen, seventh grade, Jackson Middle School - A Specialty School for Math and Science.
Morgan Johnson, eighth grade, Oak View Middle School.
Amelia Conley, 9-12, Coon Rapids High School - Center for Biomedical Sciences and Engineering.
These students will be recognized at the School Board meeting on Monday, Jan. 27 and will receive a Kindle tablet from the Horace Mann Company. Each winner will also have their artwork reproduced and displayed for a year at each school site.
