The Great Pumpkin Contest

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) The Great Pumpkin Contest is currently underway at Our Lady of Prompt Succor School in Alexandria.

The Great Pumpkin Contest was designed to make the Halloween Holiday fun and educational for OLPS students.

More than 50 third grade students designed and decorated pumpkins for this years contest.

Teachers we spoke with say the students take a tremendous amount of pride in their pumpkins each year.

"We write personal narratives and we do lots of creative writing in the third grade so they are experienced in that area. They get to get the creative juices flowing and come up with something on their own. You know the project is done at home. We feel like we prepare them to be able to do this independently at home and then when they come to school on the day of the project we are just blown away," said Kimberly Ward.

Our Lady of Prompt Succor School has held the third grade Great Pumpkin Contest for more than a decade.
