Congratulations to 4th grader Mia Ayala on placing 1st for her Citrus Shoebox float entry! Way to go!
The annual Citrus Shoebox Float competition is a fun way for elementary age students to participate in the Texas Citrus Fiesta and learn more about citrus and other Valley agricultural products used in creating the floats. It also gives the students the opportunity to learn about the art of using these products to decorate and bring unique colors to their float projects. Fourth and fifth grade students enrolled at Mission CISD, La Joya ISD and Sharyland ISD are invited to participate each year. The Progress Times, is the sponsor of the Shoe Box Float competition. Prize money and ribbons are awarded to the top three floats in each grade level, for fourth grade and fifth grade.
