Students Have Tasted Success

I just wanted to thank you for having this contest. One of the students you selected is from a very poor family with many siblings. He has overcome many obstacles. Being selected and having his poem printed has made him realize his own self-worth. He knows he can do it now. My students receive very little recognition usually. They're academically behind their peers. Your contest has added so much to their self-esteem. Life will not be easy for them, but now they have tasted success.
