Anahi Villaseca-Torres, a ninth grade student at B-L High School, was recently selected as the winner of the school’s AVID poster contest. More than 75 AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) students submitted digital designs with the hopes of having their creation chosen to serve as the official program poster for the upcoming school year. The top five finalists were selected by the school’s administration and their designs were then voted on by students.
Anahi’s design was favored as the winner due to its bold, contrasting color scheme, clear presentation of information, and obvious direction about how students who would like to participate in AVID should go about signing up for the program. AVID is an elective course taught at B-L Middle and B-L High Schools that inspires students to take control over their learning through critical thinking, inquiry and self-advocacy. The ultimate goal of AVID is to ensure that students are prepared to thrive in the world that awaits them after public education, to include their careers, post-secondary education and life in general.
Anahi’s design will be displayed throughout the school, on the B-L High School website and used in student AVID presentations. If your student is interested in applying for the AVID program for the 2019-2020 school year at B-L High School, please complete the online application that can be found at bit.ly/BLHSAVID.
