Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
District – American High School, Mission San Jose High School, Washington High School – collaborated together to create a Brain Awareness Week art contest.
In an effort to raise awareness about mental health disorders stemming from biological maladies and neuroscience in general, the three school organizations came together to organize, host, and share a district wide art competition. Students from middle and high schools across the TriCity district had the opportunity to submit art for a chance to win a monetary prize for their school and a chance to present their art on a district wide zoom call.
