ALL with Congressman Danny Davis in Chicago

February 22nd, 2013

Today Ask, Listen, Learn travelled to the Windy City to spend some time with Congressman Danny Davis at Anna Langford Community Academy! The whole middle school at Anna Langford grades 6, 7, and 8 flooded into the auditorium to hear their Congressman talk about the importance of living a healthy lifestyle and the dangers of underage drinking.  The Congressman also shared with the kids some of his tips for staying healthy which include drinking LOTS of water and avoiding drinking any alcohol.

After hearing Congressman Davis talk some lucky Anna Langford kids even had the chance to play the Ask Listen Learn game and take pictures with him! It was awesome day for the kids who were so excited to meet such a fabulous role model and also for Congressman Davis who talked about how important the kids in his district are to him. Congressman Davis loves spending time in all the Chicago Public Schools but he shared a fun fact about why he was especially excited to visit Anna Langford Academy. Turns out he was a close friend of the schools namesake Anna Langford — the first African American woman elected to the Chicago City Council!

While the Windy City was more like the Snowy City this time of year we had a fantastic time with ALL partner Congressman Davis and all the kids from Anna Langford. Great event and remember if you want to be as successful as Congressman Davis you need to say NO to underage drinking and YES to a healthy lifestyle!

Thank you, Jensen Scholastic Academy!

Today, the Ask, Listen, Learn team was in Chicago, Illinois presenting our program to 6th, 7th, and 8thgraders at Jensen Scholastic Academy.

Superstar Tyson Gay and Congressman Danny Davis were there to speak to the students about staying active in middle school.

Said Congressman Davis, “You are the most important people in the world. If you keep your bodies healthy, you’ll reach your goals.”

We hope all of the students had a fun time playing our Xavix game and winning prizes like sunglasses, bags, and Ask, Listen, Learn t-shirts. We know you’ll all remember to say “YES” to a healthy lifestyle, and “NO” to underage drinking!


Apolo Anton Ohno Rocks Chicago!

Apolo Anton Ohno is nearing the final leg of his Ask Listen Learn tour – today, he visited Chicago’s Smyth Elementary School. Despite a very early start and a couple media interviews, Apolo brought his energy and enthusiasm to a group of young kids eager to interact with the eight-time Olympic champion.

Watch video of the event below – the cacophony of excited screams at Apolo’s appearance is priceless.

The next and final step for Apolo is Seattle, this Friday. We’re excited about this event, and so is Apolo. We look forward to seeing a great hometown welcome for Apolo!
