Open house set for San Ramon Valley's Student Recognition Project

School district to announce student winners during event, set for Monday evening in San Ramon

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District is holding an open house this Monday (March 17) to publicly display students' works submitted as part of the district's Student Recognition Project.

Students participants competed in any of roughly two-dozen categories, such as art, creative writing, community service and computer programming.

Project judging was done by local professionals with experience and expertise in the specific fields. The student winners will be announced at Monday's open house, and they will be honored during an awards breakfast and gala on April 4.

"The purpose of the program is to create collaboration among students, educators and the business community in the San Ramon Valley, to promote educational excellence and to prepare students for the business world of the 21st century," district spokesman Terry Koehne said.

The program is coordinated by the district and sponsored in part by Chevron.

The open house is set to run from 4-7 p.m. Monday at Bishop Ranch 15, 12677 Alcosta Blvd. Suite 120 in San Ramon. The event is free, and refreshments will be provided.

Project categories included applied design, architecture/computer-aided drafting, community service, computer programming, creative writing, culinary arts, dance, digital art, drama, early childhood education, entrepreneur, fashion design, instrumental music, journalism, photography-digital, photography-film, poetry, science, video production, visual arts, vocal music and web design.
