Annual ANE Literacy Challenge!

  • The 6th Annual ANE Literacy Challenge received over 400 submissions this year! Students from all across the school district ranging from Kindergarten through twelfth grade sent in spectacular projects about various Alaska Native Leaders and Elders.

    • Kindergarten - First Graders Draw a  picture of an Alaska Native leader or elder.
    • Second - Third Graders Draw a picture of an Alaska Native leader or elder and write a paragraph about him/her.
    • Fourth - Sixth Graders Develop a poster about their chosen leader or elder, and cite sources from which they obtained information.
    • Seventh - Twelfth Graders Interview an elder or leader, and share the outcome in 5-7 minutes, edited videos.
