MAA attends the NEED Youth Conference and Awards in Washington, D.C.!

Along with the MA Elementary & Junior Schools of the Year Awards, we also received a special National Award... Exemplary Work Force Education Project for “Outstanding project to teach/learn about careers and workforce skills!” Also, two sixth graders won an award for their STEM project that they created while at the conference.


One student said that her favorite part of the trip was "the trolley tour of the monuments because they learned about them in social studies class"! Another student said her favorite parts of the trip were “the cruise along the Potomac and the trolley tour stop at the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial because he was my president for a project in third grade.” A special thanks to Mrs. Lyons, Ms. Lawhorn, the students and their parents for making this trip possible and for representing MAA so well.
