Road Trip #2 (Off to WIU)

The second IVC Road Trip will be heading to Western Illinois University.  The trip takes place on Tuesday, October 13th.  We will be leaving at 7:30 and returning by 3:15.  The trip is open to seniors.  Students will only need lunch money.

This is a great opportunity for the students to see a mid-size state university.

--UPDATE-- There are only three spots still available for this trip.

Voice of Democracy Contest - $500 up for grabs

One IVC student will walk away with $500 in this year's Voice of Democracy Contest sponsored by our local VFW.  Students need to create a 3-5 oral essay on the topic "My Vision for America." The competition is open to all IVC students. Deadline is November 1st.  Students should see their counselor for registration sheet and rules.

Topic: My Vision for America
Top Prize: $500
Second Prize: $200
Due Date: November 1st
For more details: Ask a Guidance Counselor

Basically students will need to write an essay and then transcribe it to an audio file.  It is actually quite simple.  The teachers at the high school use many different programs to save audio.  Students should ask their English if they are unsure what program to use.
