Call for nominations for First Citizen Award, Kiwanis Club of Wilsonville gives out dictionaries

Dictionary Day

In an effort to assist younger students in becoming good writers and resourceful learners, the Kiwanis Club of Wilsonville has been distributing dictionaries to third-graders for the last four years as a "dictionary project."

And this year, 384 dictionaries were given to Beockman Creek, Boones Ferry and Lowrie primary schools.

By giving these dictionaries to students, the Kiwanis hope students will become active readers and enjoy what the books offer like knowledge on the world's longest work, a list of presidents and planets.
