SRVUSD set for Student Recognition Project open house

Competition winners, honorable mentions to be announced Monday

The San Ramon Valley school community is set to come together Monday to check out the creative works of local students who took part in this year’s Student Recognition Project.

The open house and project display runs from 4-7 p.m. Monday in Bishop Ranch 15 in San Ramon, with remarks from superintendent Rick Schmitt and school board president Mark Jewett set for 5:30 p.m. All project submissions will be displayed, and district officials will reveal the winners and honorable mentions.

“The program is a collaboration between students, educators and the business community in the San Ramon Valley; promotes educational excellence; and prepares students for future career possibilities,” district officials said in a statement.

Winners will receive a prize, invitation to an awards breakfast and a chance to connect with the judges. Honorable mention recipients will take home a certificate. All participants will receive a letter of recognition.

The hundreds of student projects were judged by local community members with expertise in their fields.

New this year, students who win awards in art categories will have their works displayed at the Village Theatre in downtown Danville from April 22 to May 6.

Student Recognition Project categories include drama, poetry, journalism, creative writing, video production, digital art, culinary arts, three-dimensional art/applied design, digital photography, film photography, science, visual arts (black and white), visual arts (color), vocal music, instrumental music, fashion design, dance, instrumental piano, entrepreneur and community service.

The district added three new categories to this year's competition: graphic design, engineering and leadership.

The program is coordinated by the district and sponsored by Chevron, with the judging and open house space provided by Bishop Ranch. The open house will take place in Bishop Ranch 15, 12667 Alcosta Blvd., Suite 250.
