Three third grade students enrolled in the Program for Exceptionally Gifted Students (PEGS) at Rose Acres Elementary were announced as winners of Scholastic’s Clifford’s Big Red Movie Poster Contest.
DJ Hopson was a grand prize winner and will receive a DVD and book in addition to a movie screening party for his whole class. Evie Yakel and Pearl Krieger were among the 15 runner-ups and won a DVD and graphic novel.
Teacher Robin Chang used the national contest open to kindergarten to fourth graders to connect the students' work on making sure that illustrations matched their themes and stories.
“Students examined a synopsis and movie trailer and brainstormed as a class to come up with enticing imagery and connected text with dramatic effect,” she said.
The students are taught by Chang and Tracey Robinson.
