WSPTA Essay Contest

This statewide essay contest explores the important and varied influencers in the lives and education of children – from the children’s perspective. Every day children are exposed to a variety of people and each one has an opportunity to influence the path a child decides to take. Whether it is someone that sparks an interest in a new topic, helps them work through a problem, shapes the kind of person they want to become by modeling behavior, simply listens to them, or any number of other actions, this is the platform for students to share their appreciation. The application deadline is March 1 each year.

More information can be found here.

Community Service Spotlight

Ryan Huang is a junior who is a member of Eastlake’s NHS. Outside of school, he is one of the Co-Presidents of Hand in Hand We Code (HHWC) and has been an instructor there for over three years. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Ryan and the rest of HHWC provided bi-weekly coding classes for elementary and middle schoolers in the Sammamish YMCA and the surrounding community. During the pandemic, Ryan managed to move classes online, designing and organizing virtual summer and winter camps as well as monthly coding events with various themes. These virtual coding camps and classes, which included several holiday themed projects, attracted not only local students from Sammamish, but also ones from across the greater Seattle area. Ryan is also an active volunteer at Wahaha Youth Club where he provides weekly tutoring services to help kids from overseas learn English.

During the winter break 2020, Ryan built a new website for a non-profit organization Sunshine Youth Culture and Education Development Association to help promote the organization and its services to the community in a better way. Ryan is also providing monthly maintenance and technical support to the website.

Ryan believes that pandemic might prevent kids from getting together, but it should never prevent spreading the joy and knowledge of coding, and giving back to the community and standing together is more important now than ever.
