Los Cuates Middle School students Wendy Guiffaro and Nicolas Sanches have earned a trip to Washington, D.C. as area winners of the “Do The Right Thing” Challenge.

Out of 648 essays submitted from seven Valley schools, 14 finalists from seven schools were chosen. The essays by Guiffaro and Sanches were then chosen as the best two. They will read their essays to members of Congress in Washington in July.

“Do the Write Thing” Challenge, sponsored by the Kuwait-American Foundation and the National Campaign to Stop Violence, was open to eighth grade students. It provided them an opportunity to express their thoughts on making things right in their efforts to stop violence.

Entries will be judged on the basis on content, originality and responses to questions about violence, and how it has affected their lives.
