Remember the AAA Travel Agency Contest for 8th graders?
It wasn't just enter your name. You had to "do the paperwork" to quote Monsters Inc. Here are the rules:
Students must be entering the 8th grade in good standing and at least 13 years old.
A total of 60 students from Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, Nebraska, North Dakota, Tennessee, Wisconsin, select areas of Illinois, Indiana, or Minnesota will be chosen for the “Discovery Crew” cruise.
Winners will be selected based on “a creative selfie, showcasing their love for travel,” and the answers to three essay questions:
Ananya's path to the winner's circle:
"Ms. Nancy", piano teacher and owner of Music N More, is always looking for information that will help our piano students and their families. Most of the time it is music related but any topic that is helpful gets shared with our music family. A few months ago, Ms. Nancy heard the news about the AAA Travel Agency contest for 8th graders. At her lesson, Ms. Nancy shared the contest news with Ananya and the family. Ananya entered, carefully following all the rules. (Music Students are good at that) When the family got an email back, they were suspicious that it was a scam. After investigating, they found that Ananya was one of 3 winners from Florida!
