Bronx Community Board #10 Global Youth Day Essay Contest


The Youth Committee held the Global Youth Day Essay Contest.
The three 7th & eighth grade students presented their essays and oral arguments on the topic “Public Schools vs. Charter Schools.”
The committee and the students had a lively discussion on the topic and all the students presented their arguments in an extremely intelligent manner.
After the readings and discussions the committee adjourned to choose the winners. The committee was proud to present Darren Walsh from the Urban Institute for Mathematics with the third place prize of $100.00, Luis Vacco of MS 101, The Edward R Byrne School, the second place prize of $150.00, and Theresa Walsh of The urban Institute for Mathematics the first place prize of $250.00.
The students and the committee took pictures to post on our website and the friends of cb10 facebook page.
The committee also received a report on the C-Ball program and we are happy to report that borough wide the program has 585 youth participants from all twelve Bronx Community Boards.
TNCAP is awarding 20 middle & elementary school students prizes in their annual Poster Contest and will be honoring our own Patrick Caruso for all his hard work with TNCAP. Congratulations Patrick!
