KPHS students place in state-wide President's Vision Poster Contest
Park High School students placed 3rd in the state-wide Humanities Texas
President’s Vision Poster contest. They were given three weeks to select a U.S.
President and create a digital poster that clearly conveys that President’s
vision during his term(s) in office.

History teacher said, “This contest was a great opportunity for my students to
learn the importance of researching, analyzing primary sources and thinking
critically about history,”
152 poster submissions and three of those submissions were from Kingwood Park
students, Chris Holmes, Patrick McCarthy, Ivanna Soto, Danielle Celaya-Alvarez
and Paul Mead. Posters could be digital or interactive allowing students to
take the information they have collected and their primary sources to display
it all in one poster.
All three of
their poster submissions received 3rd place in the High School
poster category and also received a $100 prize from Humanities Texas.
