Calling all PQ students!
The Town Council, in partnership with 92129 Magazine, is proud to present our second annual “Growing Up PQ” essay contest. K-12 students are invited to submit essays with the theme “My Peñasquitos Playground.” Three winning essays (one in each grade level category) will describe one specific “playground” in PQ and how that location is meaningful to the author. We urge writers to think broadly about “playgrounds.” This is not just a place with sand, swings, and slides. A playground is anywhere people go to do enjoyable things—the soccer field, the canyon, the gym, your school, the library, your own backyard. So what do you love to do in PQ and where do you do it? Write about it! Three winning essays will appear in 92129 Magazine’s next issue and on the Town Council’s website, and the authors will receive cash prizes.
November 1 deadline. Email entries and any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. All the info you need is in the flyer below. Check it out!
Mark your calendars now! Fun for the whole community!

Have you found yourself staring up at our PQ street banners thinking, “Cute kids, but what is Voices for Children?” Voices for Children is a local organization that matches foster kids with volunteer Court-Appointed Special Advocates, or CASAs.
I hear you asking now, “What’s a CASA?” CASAs represent foster children in court, in school and in the community. They can make all the difference in the life of an at-risk foster youth.
The Town Council hopes our banner program can bring some attention to Voices for Children in its mission to match foster children with CASAs.
So next time you find yourself staring at one of those cute kids on the banners, ask yourself whether you have a few hours a month to give to improve the life of a foster kid. Contact Voices for Children today to find out more about what it takes to become a CASA.
