OALC students compete at MAAP Stars competition

Students from the Osseo Area Learning Center (OALC) competed at the Minnesota Association of Alternative Programs (MAAP) Stars competition. They earned nine awards, the most that have been earned by OALC students in one year. 

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 are enrolled in the MAAP Stars class that meets daily during trimester three. Students create job manuals and career portfolios, practice public speaking and participate in many other 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 stepped into their brilliance and used their voices to tell their stories, advocated for issues that they care about, and created pieces that demonstrate the high levels of learning they accomplished,” advisor Tori Nagy said. “As advisors, we are so proud of the efforts and dedication they showed this year, and are truly inspired by who they are and what they have done in our schools and community. Their efforts were validated and celebrated by the high amounts of recognition and awards they received at the competition.”
