After reading Jackie’s Wild Seattle, fifth grade students from three different schools in northeastern Connecticut, who were participants in an interdistrict grant program, worked together to design a bumper sticker slogan that addressed one of the themes (bullying, friendship, animal preservation and giving back) derived from three of the Nutmeg 2008 nominees that they all had read as part of the program.

Below is the slogan that was chosen and made into an actual bumper sticker that the schools will use to stimulate thinking to change behavior, and as a possible fundraiser.
