Expanding Your Horizons 2006 Writing Workshop
On Saturday, February 25, more than 250 girls grades 4 to 9 attended the Expanding Your Horizons Conference in Silver City, New Mexico, hosted by the Grant County Chapter of the American Association of University Women. The girls came from schools throughout southwestern New Mexico. Almost 60 girls participated in a writing workshop that day. They identified (or at least thought about identifying), researched, and wrote about their dream careers. The full text of their writing can be found on the following pages. A big thanks to all the girls who participated, and may each and every one of you achieve your dreams -- starting with the next classes you take in math and science!
