All About Me
My name is Kirsten Sue Marie S., and I am 13 years old and a seventh grader at Hobart Middle School in Hobart, Indiana. I am a born-again Christian who has really enjoyed learning about the Jewish and Islam faiths. I live with my mom and dad. My brother, Chris, is a junior at the Indiana Academy for Science, Mathematics, and Humanities in Muncie, Indiana.
I belong to Student Council and the National Junior Honor Society at Hobart Middle School. In April of this year, I will compete with the Academic Super Bowl team for science. I am part of the Hobart Middle School choir and hope to be part of the high school choir in two years. I have competed on the middle school gymnastic, track, and cross country teams. I used to play soccer for the Wild Cats Futbol Club, but I am taking a few years off before high school when I want to try out for the team. In fifth grade, I cheered for the Hobart Pop Warner teams and made the 2003-2004 Pop Warner All American Scholar Team. Also, as a fifth grader at George Earle Elementary, I won the Stewart Mattix Scholarship.
I am also involved with the Hobart High School Genesius Players. In fifth grade, I was part of the ensemble in Music Man. In March 2006, I will return to the stage as part of the ensemble for Oklahoma! that runs from Friday, March 10th, through Sunday, March 19th. I have helped as crew for Midsummer Night's Dream in November 2004, FAME in March 2005, and God's Favorite in November 2005. I also help Mr. Wolff, the choir teacher at Hobart Middle School and Hobart High School, with choir concerts and the high school talent shows.
I am a Cadette Girl Scout in Drifting Dunes Girl Scout Troop #308. I am working on my Silver Award which I need to complete by next October and want to finish this summer. As a Junior Girl Scout in fifth grade, I earned the Bronze Award by building bluebird houses for the prairie behind George Earle Elementary with two other Girl Scouts. The photographs taken during the project became a slide show that won at the AECT Student International Media Fair.
I have done projects for media fair competition since I was in first grade. Creating the projects always takes a long time and is a lot of hard work; the fun part is getting to travel around the United States. Miss Wilkison and I have gone to Atlanta, Dallas, Anaheim, Chicago, and Orlando (!!!) to accept my awards for the AECT Student International Media Fair. Other projects I have done were:
Second Grade: "Lifelong Guidelines and LifeSkills" which was a Hyper Studio project that didn't win at our local AIME media fair, but won at the AECT Student International Media Fair.
Third Grade: "The United States of America" was a Microsoft Power Point slide presentation that won only First Division at the AIME media fair, but won at the AECT Student International Media Fair.
Fourth Grade: "God Bless America, Land that We Love" which was a webpage that won Best of Category at the AIME competition and won at the AECT Student International Media Fair.
Fourth Grade: "Hoosier Book Award Nominees" as a Microsoft Power Point project won Second Division at the AIME competition, but as a webpage won at the AECT Student International Media Fair.
Fifth Grade: "The 43 Presidents of the United States" is a webpage that won First Division at the AIME competition, but won at the AECT Student International Media Fair.
Fifth Grade: "USA Girl Scout Bronze Award: Bluebird Houses" was Microsoft Power Point that wasn't entered at AIME, but won at the AECT Student International Media Fair.
Sixth Grade: "Natural Disasters" won Best of Category at the AIME competition, took second place in the AIME state competition, and won at the AECT Student International Media Fair.
Sixth Grade: "Tips for Being a Successful Student," came in First Place at the AIME competition. It also won at the AECT Student International Media Fair.
Sixth Grade: "The Tale of Two Students," which started out to be streaming video we could put on the Successful Student site, but it was too large. We decided to enter it as a live action project on the high school level so my brother, Chris, could help edit some of it. This project also won at the AECT Student International Media Fair.
Seventh Grade: This project, Western Religions, which began as a homework assignment for my social studies class.
Seventh Grade: Germs Galore, a website that talks about the main types of germs and their prevention.
Seventh Grade: Sudan, a slide show made with Microsoft Power Point that was a homework assignment for social studies this year. Mrs. Martinez is my sponsor on this project.
I create these projects for other students to use and hope that the information will help others with their homework and projects.
