The Writing Festival is a signature project for our club as literacy promotion remains a focus of SITS. Committee members work with the fantastic teaching staff at South Tahoe Middle School through the language arts department. Each grade level writes to a specific writing prompt. Teachers provide SITS members with top samples and our ladies work together to determine the final winners. Our youth and their guests attend a fantastic morning celebrating them! It’s a wonderful opportunity for our kids to shine. They love receiving the recognition for their work and efforts and they appreciate the small monetary award we provide too.
