December 12, 2023: With their first event of the year, STFers at Corona Del Mar high school had an event in their school’s quad. In honor of human rights day, students could spin the wheel and earn a piece of candy if they answered a trivia question about climate change, human rights on the southern border, or the UDHR correctly. Students promoted the event through posters and creating an announcement video on their school’s news network Tritan TV.
