Centennial Middle School’s Pawwwsitively Purrrfect Pet Photo Contest Engages Students

There’s no denying middle schoolers have a proclivity for taking photos, but at Centennial Middle School, students are asked to turn off the selfie-mode and instead point their cameras at their pets! The Pawwwsitively Purrrfect Pet Photo Contest keeps students engaged during the short winter days between January and Spring Break. Started by Centennial Campus Supervisor Todd Sexton five years ago, the contest asks students to submit photos of their pets for judging by their peers. Students can only submit one photo per pet, but can submit as many pets as they have. Eighth grader Alexys Flores-Sponsler has entered the contest all three years of middle school. “It’s just fun to show off our animals and to have people see what they look like,” she says. Sexton says the students have a lot of fun with the contest and he enjoys seeing them stop by the wall of submitted photos as they pass by to their next classes. Eighth grader Serina Perry takes a particular strategy with the photos she submits, “I try to take pictures of them at their cutest moments. We have a lot of dogs, and they have puppies – and puppies are so adorable!” The number of photos submitted this year more than doubled last year’s total, so the competition is steep, and the wall of photos at Centennial continues to grow.
