2004 MESAS MAIL-IN CONTEST A SUCCESS! Winners Announced May 2004

By Dr. Don M. Jordan, MESAS State Director

The state-wide MESAS mail-in contest was held this winter & spring. There were 255 entries, with 138 students from grades 4-6 and 117 students from grades 6-8. This year, the contests proved to be especially challenging and covered a broad range of topics. We are grateful to Coastal Carolina University for the creation of this year's contest.

Awards were given to Grand, State, Regional and School Winners. The Grand Prizes went to 6 students who submitted the best overall papers. Betsy Hodge of Sangaree Intermediate, Jessica Kohl of Kohl Discovery School, Sean Bell of Boulder Bluff Elementary, Selin Engec of the Islamic Academy of Columbia, Bushra Rahman of Lonnie B. Nelson, Brooke Kirkland of McCormick Elementary, Ben Saul of Cambridge Academy, and Alice Winter of Holly Springs Elementary were this year's Grand Prize Winners. Congratulations!

The contest scores were very good overall and a large percentage of the entrants qualified for an award. Each school that participates is guaranteed at least one winner. Certificates and prizes were mailed out to every student's principal so that the awards could be presented at their respective school's Awards Assembly. We congratulate each and every contestant for his or her fine efforts! We encourage all students in South Carolina schools to participate next year. Below is a list of the winners and their prize, as well as their sponsor and school information:</p> <pre> Grand Prize Winners Gr Winner
