Oak Meadow student fourth most philosophical

Fourth Most PHilosophical student, Maya Echevarria.

Fifth grade student at Oak Meadow, celebrates after finding out she is the fourth most philosophical fifth grader in the nation!

Oak Meadow Elementary School fifth grade student Maya Echevarria's poem, entitled 'Beauty,' was selected as the fourth most philosophical entry in this year's Kids Philosophy Slam contest! The topic was 'Truth or Beauty - which has a greater impact on society.'

Maya's G/T class studied this topic deeply, wrote their ideas on both truth and beauty and proceeded to form their own opinions and final products. The contest received over 4,000 entries this year. Maya's winning poem can be read at here.

The Kid's Philosophy Slam is a great yearly venue for students to study and develop voice about some of the big philosophical ideas of our times.
