Foto Feature: Colonial students create projects for school’s Brilliant Women Award

The Colonial PTA’s Diversity Committee ran a contest in honor of Women’s History Month called the Brilliant Women Award which invited students, working solo or in teams of up to four, to create a poster, collage, painting, sculpture, story, slide show, video or song about any woman (real or fictional) they think is brilliant. Winners are selected based on their creativity and effort, and awarded a popsicle party for their class. What is especially sweet is that our judges are members of the PMHS Women’s Empowerment Club.

Given how remarkable the submissions were last year, we decided to host an Open House this year so that families can view submissions for themselves. Our Third Graders operated a bake sale at the Open House in support of the Malala Fund.  (Each grade at Colonial runs a service project during the year that is tied to a specific theme, called a PAWS Project, and Third Graders are tasked with doing something in support of Women’s History Month.) The Open House for the Brilliant Women Award was March 18 tonight from 6:30-7:30 at the Colonial library.
