Students from Roosevelt and Edison high schools and Gaston Middle School earned top 10 honors in their grade levels for their submissions to the Fresno County Superintendent of Schools (FCSS) One Day One Voice 9/11 art, poetry and logo contest. The contest, a partnership between FCSS and the California 9/11 Memorial, honors first responders and heroes of the attack on New York City and Washington, D.C. on September 11, 2001. Entries reflected how America was united after the 9/11 attacks.

Roosevelt’s Sarah Delgado and Grace Vang placed in the top three and won $1,000 scholarships. Thirty-four other Roosevelt students won top 10 honors. Edison’s Alyssa Hayashi had the top logo and won a $1,000 scholarship. Her logo will be used on a T-shirt provided to all contest
participants. Four other Edison students placed in the top 10 in their grades for their art. Gaston’s Fatima Sanchez placed in the top three for art and won an iPad. All top-10 finishers won medals.

The top winner will be announced at the event and awarded a trip to New York to the National 9/11 Memorial and Museum.

“Most of our students were not alive during the time of the 9/11 attacks. Through this contest, students can learn more about this defining time in our country’s history and help keep the memory alive of those who died in these attacks,” said Superintendent Bob Nelson.
