All's Fair with Social Studies Students

June 10, 2004 – If the V.I. Education Department is to create "a Community of Great Thinkers," those thinkers need to know how to read maps; who's in charge in countries and where the capital city is; identify where food, clothing and other products come from, airport cities; and a great many other things encompassed by the learning of social studies.
Winners of this year's social studies fair, "The Structure and Organization of the Virgin Islands Government," have been announced by social studies coordinator Anne Smith.
Leonard Dober Elementary School placed first in the elementary category, with Joseph Sibilly and Ulla F. Muller schools tied for second, and Michael J. Kirwan Elementary School in third.
In the middle/junior high category, Bertha C. Boschulte Middle School took home first place, Saints Peter and Paul came in second, and third place was split between Addelita Cancryn Junior High School and Wesleyan Academy.
In the Special Events elementary category, Ulla Muller School won. In the secondary or middle/junior high Special events category, Wesleyan Academy took first, Kirwan Elementary earned second, and J. Antonio Jarvis Elementary School earned third place.
"I am very proud of the efforts made by the public, private and parochial schools who submitted projects as part of this year's Social Studies Fair," Smith said.
