photo (7)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.
