Oxford Middle School (OMS) seventh grade student Ava Tarach was awarded one of five honorable mentions in the middle school category of the “I Voted” Sticker contest.
The contest was organized by The Celebration of Women’s Suffrage Movement Ad Hoc Committee with collaboration with the Oakland County Intermediate School District and the Cornerstone Community Financial Credit Union.
Ava, along with the other students in Ms. McNeill’s seventh grade Geography class at OMS, created a design for the contest. Ava’s entry was one of over 600 submissions which were judged on use of creativity, artistic skill, execution, and interpretation of the theme, “The 100th Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage.”
She was invited to the Oakland County Board of Commissioners meeting on November 20, 2019 where she was recognized.
