Fairgrounds Middle School Recognized at National Showcase

Students Elaine Kwan, Lee-Ann Kalenoski, Allison Thompson, Cameron Rogers, Ethan Boghigian and Cesar Dominguez, creators of Styrofoam, You’re Going Home.

Fairgrounds Middle School, Nashua, which received a Superior rating for its Project Citizen Portfolio in the NH State Showcase, was awarded an Exceptional rating at the National Showcase held in New Orleans July 22-25. The state showcase featured three schools comprising several classes. The national showcase is held in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the National Council of State Legislatures and the portfolio receiving the highest rating in each state is sent to the National Showcase.

The ratings at the national showcase are: superior, exceptional, outstanding, honorable mention, and special recognition. According to the rules of the Center for Collaborative Education, which co-sponsors Project Citizen, students prepare four-panel portfolios and documentation binders chronicling the steps they took to identify and research problems in their communities; they give their evaluations of alternative policies, their proposed public policies, and action plans formulated to have their policies enacted.

There were 52 entries in all, one from each of the 50 states and one each from the District of Colombia and Guam. Fairgrounds’ submission was titled, "Styrofoam, You’re Going Home."

Supreme Court Rule 42(9) requires all NH admitted attorneys to notify the Bar Association of any address change, home or office.
