Charleston County students have a shot at winning a year of free after-school services if they can come up with the best name for the school district’s after-school program.
The Charleston County School District is holding a contest to rename its after-school program, currently called Kaleidoscope. All county students can enter the “Rename CCSD’s After School Program and Logo Design” contest.
Names and designs must show the after-school program as a place where students explore, laugh, investigate, work in teams and think creatively in subjects such as the arts, science, technology, engineering and math.
Jason Sakran, director of Extended Learning and Community Education, which includes the Kaleidoscope program, said the main purpose for the name change is to “better illustrate” the district’s goal of creating an environment of expanded learning after school.
Entries should be sent by mail to the attention of Odessah Mackey at 75 Calhoun St. Charleston, S.C. 29403 or via email at email@example.com. All entries must be received by 5 p.m. April 9. For more information go to www.ccsdschools.com and click on Community Education/Kaleidoscope.
