Students from the Osseo Area Learning Center (OALC) competed at the Minnesota Association of Alternative Programs (MAAP) Stars competition. On May 4-5, eight OALC scholars traveled to Mankato for the statewide alternative school competition in life skills, teamwork and academics.
MAAP Stars is a student leadership organization in alternative schools that seeks to develop social, academic and career skills in competitive individual and team competitions. Students create career portfolios, prepare and perform public speeches, and participate in many other group problem-solving activities that foster responsibility and life skills. The three main events for MAAP Stars are a leadership conference in the fall, Legislative Day in the winter and the competition in May.
“This year, MAAP Stars scholars impressed myself and advisor Ann Vue with their dedication, creativity and teamwork. The scholars pushed themselves beyond their comfort zone, participating in events that they would typically avoid,” advisor Tori Nagy said. “They were eager to receive feedback to refine and improve their work for finals competition and next year. It is such a joy to work alongside truly brilliant young people, and it brings me inspiration to know they are the next generation.”
