Photo of the Day - Congratulations to the LANDMARK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL fifth-grade Brazil team for placing 1st at the World Fest World Cultural Fair contest held September 23 at War Memorial Park. The fifth-grade Laos team was also awarded honorable mention. Leading up to the fair, LES Students spent the first five weeks of art class creating their displays. Seven student speakers took time on their own to research and study so they would have prepared answers for the judges with questions about Brazil and Laos. The two teams competed against other, other elementary students, and they also competed against middle and high school teams, as well. What a great achievement for the LANDMARK ELEMENTARY students! The World Fest/World Cultural Fair Contest was created in 1994 by the Little Rock Racial and Cultural Diversity Commission to offer students a variety of multicultural learning experiences. Students research, learn and present cultural facts and information about an international country – presentations are judged. The event is much like a science fair in which participating student’s research and showcase a country. Contest participants are required to create a tri-fold display board with information (geography, history, culture, etc.) about their assigned country. Students should be prepared to tell judges/visitors highlights and interesting facts about the country they are representing. Displays are judged on appearance, information presented and the students’ knowledge.
