Armeyah Ablola, a student at Odessa Kilpatrick Elementary, entered and won the Raise Your Hand Texas (RYHT) Pick the Pic contest. The contest ran from Sept.7 – Oct. 7 and required Abola to submit a photo answering the question: “What two things inspire you to achieve success?”
In Ablola’s photo, she stated that she is inspired by her faith in God and her family.
The contest was open to all public school students in Texas and RYHT has awarded one winner per Region as determined by the number of “likes” per photo. Ablola was competing for first place with other public school students in Education Service Region 4. Her winning photo had a record 1,116 votes at the close of the contest.
RYHT is a non-profit public education advocacy organization. The contest was open to all current Texas public school students (parental permission required) and the goal was to raise public awareness of the importance of student achievement and success.
The statewide contest in which parents and students were asked to submit one photo was conducted on the RYHT Facebook page. Individual student winners received and Apple iPad and their campus received a $500 contribution from the Raise Your Hand Texas Education Fund.
