Uttara Krishnan Wins History Contest

Uttara Krishnan, a seventh grader from Ida Price Middle School, was the grand prize winner for Junior Scholastic’s Eyewitness to History Contest. Junior Scholastic is a social studies magazine for students in grades 6-8 that encourages students to connect with members of their community and interview people who have experienced historic events. This year the Junior Scholastic team received over 400 entries, and Krishnan’s interview was featured in the April 22 issue of Junior Scholastic.

For her entry titled “A Child’s Point of View: The Iranian Revolution,” Uttara interviewed a family friend named Sylvie Kadivar about her experiences during Iran’s revolution as a child and starting a new life in France. For her grand-prize-winning entry, Uttara and her teacher will each receive $250. You can read Uttara’s interview with Sylvie in an article titled “Escaping Iran’s Revolution”:

Congratulations, Uttara!
