2012 Literary Extravaganza

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - More than 550 students from 21 different schools in Calcasieu Parish and Jennings competed at The 2012 Literary Extravaganza.

Students competed in the areas of math, english, science, social studies, spelling, and art.

The overall school division winners were T.S. Cooley Elementary for the elementary school division and S.J. Welsh Middle School for the middle school division.

The Lake Charles Pan-Hellenic Council has hosted the 2012 Literary Extravaganza for more than 20 years.

The Pan-Hellenic council consists of nine African American Greek sororities and fraternities: Kappa Alpha Psi, Omega Psi Phi, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta, Alpha Phi Alpha, Phi Beta Sigma, Sigma Gamma Rho, and Iota Phi Theta.

According to Wikipedia:

"The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) is a collaborative organization of nine historically African American, international Greek lettered fraternities and sororities. The nine NPHC organizations are sometimes collectively referred to as the "Divine Nine". The council promotes interaction through forums, meetings and other mediums for the exchange of information and engages in cooperative programming and initiatives through various activities and functions.

Each constituent member organization determines its own strategic direction and program agenda. Today, the primary purpose and focus of member organizations remains camaraderie and academic excellence for its members and service to the communities they serve. Each promotes community awareness and action through educational, economic, and cultural service activities."
