On May 20, seventh-grade Quest students from Katherine Enslein’s class at Kamiakin Middle School received the Best Oral Presentation award for their Project Citizen portfolio, which recommends employing full-time school resource officers at schools.

The school was one of 14 in the state that participated in the event at the capitol. Students identify a problem in their community, research alternatives, propose a policy solution and develop an action plan. The event is organized by Washington State Legislature Civic Education. Volunteer judges include attorneys, sitting judges, journalists and council members.
