South Park Middle School student Ava Ng won first place in the Junior Scholastic Eyewitness to History contest. Students from across the country participate in the contest in which they are asked to interview someone who witnessed a historic event, submit an 800- to 1,000-word interview in Q&A form and write a paragraph about what they learned from the interview.


Ava interviewed her mother who witnessed the peaceful, pro-democracy protests in Tiananmen Square in 1989. Ava’s interview was published in the April 24 edition of Junior Scholastic


Ava’s success in the contest isn’t the first for a South Park student. Mr. Levdansky says Ava is the ninth student to win the national contest in the last 17 years.
