On September 18, AISD will host the awards reception for the annual Vision + Voice multilingual poetry contest at the ACC Eastview Campus (3401 Webberville Road 78702) in Room 8500. AISD students from kindergarten to 12th grade submit poetry to the contest, with one winner and one to two honorable mentions per grade.
