Primary Division (Pre-K-Grade 2)

Title: I will change the world through my dance
Grade: 2
O.N. Hirsch Elementary PTA
Peralta District PTA
“I will change the world through my dance. Dance, music and art unites our world and brings us together in so many ways, today I dance to an English song but I am performing an Indian classical dance. I begin by showing how beautiful our world is with its beautiful nature. I also try to show how important it is to be kind, caring and respectful to each other. My hope for the future is of a beautiful, clean planet with happy people and nature in harmony.”

Jenna Le
Title: Erase The Hate
Grade: 6
Temecula Middle PTSA
Twenty-Third District PTA

Kindness does not make you weak, it makes you strong. We need more love than hate. Treat others like how you would like to be treated. One person can make a difference and set an example for others.

High School Division (Grades 9-12)

Aubrie Stoehr
Title: Remedy
Grade: 11
Temecula Valley High School PTSA
Twenty-Third District PTA
“Sometimes changing the world can start just by being patient; to recognize one’s own purpose. Changing the world can simply start as a recognition of how one can inspire and help others; “no river is too wide or too deep.” Dance has always been my remedy for every problem, but choreographing has allowed me to recognize my potential to share stories and connect to people. I will hopefully change the world by guiding others; choosing to double major in dance and education in college and ultimately becoming a teacher. Sometimes changing the world just starts with one person who can”
