Students solve gender gap at annual event

A mid-April draft blew through the trees on Regis University’s campus as members of the Regis community gathered inside to watch middle school students perform for a panel of judges on solutions to mend the global gender gap issue.

Students dove deep into this issue unearthing a wealth of information about a variety of different regions.

The students were participating in The World Affairs Challenge, hosted at Regis University. The annual challenge asks middle school students to address a range of global issues spanning a multitude of nations in an effort to promote knowledge on subjects that reach beyond the boarders of the United States.

After presenting their findings and solutions to a panel of judges each student participated in a group yoga exercise followed by an art and culture presentation. After, teachers attended a presentation on how to address gender in the classrooms.

The final portion of the day was set aside for the winning school to perform their solutions on stage for their parents. Out of 17 districts Boulder Valley took first place and presented on the current standing of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
