San Eli ISD Middle Schoolers are Finalists for 2018 ‘Do the Write Thing’

Five San Elizario ISD (SEISD) Middle School Students are among 40 semi-finalists who participated in the 2018 Do the Write Thing Challenge.

Evelyn Trejo, Arlette Esparza, Darlene Silva, Marcos Argumedo, and Dailyn Velez are among the 40 semi-finalists selected from over 7,000 students.

SEISD officials said, “They demonstrated important critical thinking abilities, creativity, and most importantly, their essays offered important solutions to the issue of violence.”

The Do the Write Thing Challenge gives middle school students an opportunity to examine the impact of youth violence on their lives. Through classroom discussions and writings, students communicate what they think should be done to reduce youth violence.

They also make personal commitments to do something about this problem.

A recognition event honoring all student finalists will be held on Saturday, April 28th, at UTEP’s Union Cinema and two students will be announced as the National finalists.

The National finalists, a parent, and a teacher will be awarded with an expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. where they will attend the National Do the Write Thing Leadership activities.
