May 16, 2003 Winners of the St. Thomas-St. John Education District Social Studies Fair have been selected from participants in this year's event, held May 6 at Emancipation Garden.
District Social Studies Coordinator Annie Smith, who announced the winners, said the theme of the fair was "Our culture, our home, our beautiful Virgin Islands."
"Students who represented public, private and parochial schools displayed projects from work studied and completed as part of the individual school's social studies curriculum," Smith said.
Winners were announced in four separate categories. For project presentation, the winners were Addelita Cancryn Junior High, Peace Corps Elementary and Sts. Peter and Paul School; in the category of poetry presentation, Wesleyan Academy was the winner; in cultural dance, Lockhart Elementary and Ulla Muller Elementary were both honored; and the Addelita Cancryn Junior High Dancers won for special cultural event.
