Peter Griggs A fifth-grade student at Alaska Native Cultural Charter School in Anchorage, Alaska, Mr. Griggs has participated since 2013 in the school’s 21st CCLC program. An articulate and enthusiastic student, he brings energy and innovation to whatever opportunities arise.

A thinker and planner who always analyzes and seeks solutions, Mr. Griggs led the Lego Robotics Team in the school’s 2015 First Lego League. He contributed to the team’s trophy for "Inspiration in Core Values" at the state competition. Local TV station KTUU interviewed the Lego Robotics Team for a story about the Afterschool Alliance conference held in Anchorage. Mr. Griggs immediately became the spokesman for the group, and many in the school and community acknowledged his articulate presentation.
