The annual Carved Pumpkins contest of the High School section of Colegio Central took place once again.
Now that everyone has returned to in-person classes, there was great expectation of how it would be carried out. Once the call was launched, the students began to form their teams which could have up to 5 participants. The welcoming was excellent, with a total participation of:
15 pumpkins, and a total of 50 students from the section of the three school grades.
There was a diversity of characters for the pumpkins:
Frida Kahlo, among others.
The points to rate were:
Diction and pronunciation in English, characterization and carving of the pumpkin, clothing, and venue decorations.
The day of the contest arrived, not without having rehearsed and, above all, preparing their story in English based on the character they recreated with their pumpkin. When the contest began, the jury passed in front of each participating team to evaluate their performance based on a rubric that the students worked on.
Upon completion, the verdict was announced. The Olmec pumpkin won first place, created by third-year high school students.
A pumpkin representing the logo of the Qatar 2022 World Cup won second place, also made by third-year high school students.
“The world is speaking” pumpkin by second-year high school students won third place.
