Students from across the Sewanhaka Central High School district attended Sewanha-Con, the district’s first ever pop culture convention on Saturday, March 8. The event was designed to emulate larger events, such as Comic Con. Students who participated signed up beforehand for different activities, including trivia, anime screenings, videogame competitions and a chance to meet Misako Rocks!, a professional manga artist from Japan who currently resides in Brooklyn.
Also in attendance were members of the 501st Legion, a volunteer group that promotes interest in Star Wars, costuming and charitable work. The district wide event, which was organized by the district librarians, was a great success. Both students and librarians have aspirations for making the event bigger and better in the coming years.
