On Saturday, April 21, 2007, 45 students from the Miguel Juarez Middle School in Waukegan traveled to the Magnificent Mile in Chicago to spruce up the Eli M. Schulman Playground and Seneca Park. This is the second year that students from Juarez have participated in this activity funded by a grant from the Illinois State Board of Education and administered through the office of Lt. Governor Pat Quinn.

This year Juarez students competed to design the T-shirt that the students were given on the day of the event. The winning entry was designed by 8th Grade student, Jackie Maldonado and the second place winner was 7th grade student, Marisol Ciriaco.

The winning entry by Jackie Maldonado is shown above. Several of the over 300 entries are highlighted below.
