A Christmas Carol Contest Winners at Memorial!
Launched in 1989, the annual Great Lakes Theater A Christmas Carol Writing Contest is a literacy program open to all Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) students in grades six, seven and eight. Every year, students participate by writing original stories, songs and poems inspired by the timeless themes in Dickens classic tale. Almost 2,000 students from over 50 CMSD schools submit entries to the contest each season. Memorial is proud to announce to two of our Cardnals, Shadell Flowers (7th grade) and Shelena Stokes (7th grade) were announced among this years winners! All participating students received admission to a special student matinee performance of the play. At the conclusion of this special matinee, school winners are brought up on stage, awarded A Christmas Carol t-shirts, meet members of the acting company, and receive special recognition - and thunderous applause - from their peers and teachers. The Memorial family is proud of you both!
