CONGRATULATIONS Victoria Crisologo
Congratulations to P.H.H.S. 10th grader Victoria Crisologo who was one of the 14 Grand Prize winners of the 19th annual “Student Writing for Literacy Library Essay Contest.” She was one of three local winners, out of 266 locally submitted essays, that competed against 1197 city wide entries. Victoria received a laptop computer donated by Computers 2SD Kids and additional awards which were presented on May 5, at the Balboa Park Club. Present for the ceremony were her P.H.H.S. English teacher Wendy Lange, P.H.H.S. Principal Elizabeth Gillingham, SCFOL President Joan Hayes and the San Carlos Branch Youth Services Librarian Erin Moore as well as other SCFOL members and Victoria’s family. The annual contest is sponsored by the SDPL, FSDPL, City schools and librarians, KPBS-One Book-One-San Diego, Lloyd’s Pest Control, Computers 2SD Kids, and the Jack Winer Family. We congratulate all of the participants, and thank their parents, teachers, schools, and sponsors for supporting this annual event which was the original idea of our own San Carlos Friends of the Library Past President, Jack Winer.
