We are thrilled to share the numerous awards Bridge School received this year!
1. Innovative Schools Award
In late March, students traveled to Montpelier to receive an “Innovative Schools Award” from the National School Choice Week organization. Bridge School was recognized from the State House floor, and students got to connect with other independent school students from across Vermont.
2. Letters About Literature
Out of over 120 entries, Bridge students won 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in the Letters About Literature Contest! This contest is sponsored by the Library of Congress and the Vermont State Library, and asks students to write a letter to an author whose work impacted their understanding of themselves or the world. The students in Amanda Warren’s Language Arts class all wrote letters and submitted them to the contest as part of this year’s curriculum. It was unbelievable that Bridge School swept the contest!
The winners traveled to the State House to receive their awards, and the 1st place winner read her letter out loud! The 1st place winner’s entry was also promoted to the national contest. Above, the winners are pictured with the Vermont State Librarian, Jason Broughton.
3. Junior Duck Stamp Contest
Bridge students took 1st and 2nd place in the Junior Duck Stamp Contest sponsored by the US Fish and Wildlife! The 1st place artwork spent a month being displayed at the Fairbanks Museum in St. Johnsbury. These drawings were done during “Winter Week” in February–a fun week where Bridge offers a variety of unique electives.
