SBS second grader, Savannah ‘31, won third place in poetry in this year’s Houston Rodeo Writing Competition with her original poem, “The Pride of Texas.”
We are proud of SBS second grader, Savannah, who entered her poem, “The Pride of Texas” in the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ Trailblazer Committee’s inaugural Writing Competition for Texas second graders. According to the Trailblazer Committee, the writing contest is “an opportunity for students to display their creativity, imagination and writing skills in either an essay or poem.” The 2021 theme was “Why I Am Proud to Live in Texas,” and Savannah’s poem definitely fit the bill!
From bluebonnets to tex-mex, Blue Bell to Davy Crockett, her poem highlights the fun Texas icons and traditions we all know and love. Savannah’s second grade teacher, Jessica Ford, said, “Savannah is an excellent student and writer, so I wasn't surprised at all that she won. Savannah takes her time to develop each of her writings and always does her best.”
