PRESS RELEASE South Canton Scholars Student Wins Statewide Creativity Contest

Press Release


CANTON, Mich., Tuesday, April 8, 2014—A fourth-grade student at South Canton Scholars Charter Academy won a statewide writing contest. Rhea Sridhara won a poetry category in the Kroger “I Can Make History” writing contest. The contest was held during Black History Month. 
Rhea is involved in South Canton’s advanced writing club. Her teacher Diana Nati encouraged all of the students in the club to enter the Kroger contest. Rhea wrote a poem about Frederick Douglass and her appreciation for his perseverance and work for freedom.  
“I am very proud of Rhea and of the other students who submitted poems,” said Nati. “Her poem was carefully crafted and the result was a very effective piece with a message that obviously resonated with the judges.” 
Kroger opened the contest to all fourth-through twelfth-grade students in Michigan.  Students could enter one of four categories: art, essay, poetry, or music. 
On Saturday, April 6, Sridhara, her family, and Nati attended the winners luncheon in Dearborn. Sridhara won a laptop as a prize.

South Canton Scholars Charter Academy is a free public charter school serving students in grades kindergarten through eighth.
