Arvest in Greater Kansas City and Summit Lake Middle School recently worked together to celebrate students who have music in their hearts. An essay contest was created, and the winner received two tickets to the Two Cellos concert on April 5 at the Arvest Bank Theatre at the Midland*. 

The students were asked to describe how music affected who they are and who they will become. This 500 word essay contest was open to current seventh and eighth graders at Summit Lake Middle School and was evaluated based on conventions, structure and adherence to the theme. 
 
Associate Brenda Woods presented the tickets to Crystal Grigsby and Ryann Eliff on March 31. 
 
“It was very rewarding to present the winners with the concert tickets and to see the excitement the contest had created in the music class,” Woods said. She also had the honor of judging the essays. “I loved reading the thoughtfully worded essays. The students shared the impact music had on their lives, and it was very heartfelt and touching in many ways.” 

What a great way to make a difference with the younger population of the Lee’s Summit community!
