Oak Ridge Student Wins White Sox Contest

One of Oak Ridge’s 4th grade ELA teachers is known for being one of the biggest Chicago White Sox Fans there is. Her name is Ms. Honan, and she teaches the 4th grade Honors ELA class. For an extra project, Ms. Honan suggested to her students that they might create something to enter the Chicago White Sox’s Jackie Robinson Student Contest. The contest was open to students in grades 1-12, and students were invited to “showcase their creativity by entering graphic designs, art, videos, poetry, or essays about an individual in the past who helped build a path forward for all in baseball.” Many of the Oak Ridge 4th grade Honors ELA students entered the contest, and we were so excited to find out that one of our very own Mustangs won the grand prize! Emma won a VIP suite experience, was able to participate in the pre-game parade on-field, was recognized in a pre-game recognition ceremony, and received a Chicago White Sox swag bag! Other students from Ms. Honan’s class who entered the contest also received free tickets to the game on Monday, April 15 for Jackie Robinson Day. Ms. Honan and Mrs. Scislowicz, Oak Ridge 4th grade Math teacher, attended the game as well. We are so proud of everyone who participated in the contest, and a huge congratulations to Emma for winning the grand prize! Enjoy the photos!
