Congratulations to 10 year old Ariana Sokolov from Troop 275! After entering an essay contest hosted by the Arizona Center for Afterschool Excellence, her essay was selected from more than 1,000 essays to be among the 100 published in the “Voices of Afterschool” publication. Her essay discussed why young people are important to the future of Arizona.

Ariana was then selected to read her essay at the 2011 Spotlight on Afterschool: Awards of Excellence Luncheon on November 9th.

Awesome job, Ariana!
