Elementary students win symphony's essay contest
The Victoria Symphony Peter and the Wolf Essay contest named two winners from Victoria elementary schools.
Alyssa Arroyo, from Rowland Elementary won the contest. The runner-up was Erica Bosquez, from Aloe Elementary.
After attending the concert in February, the students wrote essays about the "Peter and the Wolf" story or concert as though it was a news item. They received their prizes at the Victoria Symphony Orchestra's Downtown Rhythms concert on April 26, and their essay posters were displayed at the Fine Arts Center lobby at the April 28 symphony concert.
A total of 163 other Victoria ISD fifth-graders competed in the contest.
