    A group of LPS high school students completed a story for Lenovo's Travelling Storybook Contest during Creative Writing enrichment group, where they had to write about what school would be like in the future. Lenovo had a computer shipped to the school and students had to complete a 1000 word max story about what LPS would look like in the future. Another middle school student, completed the illustrations using the same laptop.

    If Learning Prep is chosen as a top ten finalist, our story will be animated by a group of professional animators and the overall winner will receive a complete tech upgrade to their school's technology room. Stay tuned and wish us luck!
