[ARCHIVED] Councilman Elvis R. Maldonado Recognizes Student Participation in Academic Quiz Show Pilot

During the March 20th Homestead City Council meeting, Councilman Elvis R. Maldonado and the Homestead Education Committee recognized the students who participated in the pilot of the Homestead Academic Quiz Show.

The goal of the Academic Quiz show, a program created by the Homestead Education Committee, is to encourage academic achievement in Homestead, as students strive to learn to be able to compete and win prizes in a fun environment.

The academic quiz show, which tests students in the categories of geography, math, science and language arts is set to air sometime after the FCAT and will be open to all Homestead students. Councilman Maldonado, liaison to the Homestead Education Committee, recently hosted a pilot of the game show in which students from The Charter School at Waterstone and Campbell Drive Middle School participated in the competition. The successful pilot, which serves to test the program, can be watched in the following YouTube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txEM7RF4b0c

“The Homestead Education Committee is committed to bringing attention to academic achievement in Homestead Schools and to foster talent through healthy competition,” said Councilman Elvis Maldonado. “I am proud to award these students for their talent, hard work and participation in this new program that combines technology and learning in a fun environment.”

Willie Wamble, a member of the Homestead Education Committee and a Social Studies teacher at Campbell Drive Middle School, accepted the certificates and gift cards on behalf of all the students who participated in the Academic Quiz Show Pilot.

“It has been a great pleasure to be part of a committee that is dedicated to the betterment of our children,” said Willie Wamble. “On behalf of the students who participated in this program I kindly accept these prizes.”
