Thousand Oaks, CA –  Compass Charter Schools (CCS) announced scholar Nicholas W. Jr., a Kindergartner at CCS of Los Angeles, as the winner of its #CCSBacktoSchool Selfie Contest. Throughout September, scholars were invited to take a selfie while holding the CCS Back-to-School sign and then share their photos on social media. The contest was an opportunity for scholars to mark the start of the new school year.

Nicholas shared a photo of himself while holding the back-to-school sign on the first day of school, which was also his first day of Kindergarten. He will receive a back-to-school supply kit as the grand prize. Other CCS scholars entered photos of their first day of school, which included lists of career goals and fun facts about themselves.

“Congratulations to Nicholas for being named the winner of our #CCSBacktoSchool Selfie Contest,” said Rebecca MacAlpine, Director of Engagement. “He shared a great photo of his first day of school and the excitement on his face really says it all!
