I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Alhambra , CA United States

Last month, 1st grade Monterey Highlands Elementary School student Shawn Li drew a colorful rainbow set in Alhambra. Alongside his sister and mother, Shawn looked around Alhambra Park for inspiration as both children participated in the Alhambra Source bookmark making competition at the 2nd Annual Alhambra Teacher’s Association Read Across America event.

Shawn’s drawing, the winner of the contest which had over 50 submissions, will be printed on the opposite side of the next edition of the Alhambra Source bookmark. His prize for participation and artistic craft is a “We Love Alhambra” balloon, an Alhambra Source decal, and a gift card to be used for school supplies. 

The Alhambra Source contest and the ATA event was made in part to support civic engagement and literacy in within Alhambra by getting kids excited about reading. With book giveaways, reading hubs led by community leaders, live music, and a plethora of other engaging activities, hundreds of students enjoyed an afternoon with local educators, community groups, and school administration representatives.

Congratulations Shawn and we will see you at the next Alhambra Source contest!
