MUSCATINE, Iowa—Muscatine Community School District’s annual Race for the Schools allows students to help support their schools in all different ways, from participating in the race to helping get the word out about it. This year, Madison Elementary School sixth grader Mohit Wani won the Race for the Schools poster contest, allowing him to use his creativity to remind the community about this exciting event.

Mohit shared that he put a lot of work into his poster. “I did it in three days,” he explained: “The first day I asked my parents for ideas and sketched it all out. The second day, I sketched it on big paper, and the third day, I colored and completed it.”

Students from across the district submitted designs for consideration. The race committee chose their five favorites and allowed the community to vote for them online. This year, Neftaly Lopez-Mendoza, a sixth grader at Franklin; Gio Ocampo, another sixth grader at Franklin; Allison Poppe, a fifth grader at Madison; and Keely Williams, a sixth grader at Madison, placed in the top five along with Mohit.

When Mohit learned he won the contest, he felt excited and pleased with his accomplishments. “I feel really great about it—it was a great opportunity for me!” he exclaimed. Mohit also made a point of thanking his parents and teachers for helping him with the poster and the race organizers for giving him a chance to compete.

In school, Mohit shared he enjoys studying art and math most. “I like art because I really, really love drawing,” he said, adding he enjoys math, “because it’s fun and I like doing problems.” In creating his poster, Mohit’s drawing and problem-solving skills he learned in his two favorite classes worked to make a truly beautiful and precise piece of art.

This year, the Race for the Schools will take place on May 2. Mohit and all the other finalists will have their posters on display at the finish line.
