Coppell Middle School North – Cafeteria
It’s a fact that humor, laughter and novelty unchain the brain’s ability to learn and retain information, not to mention their power to motivate! Kidprov utilizes the art of improvisational comedy to establish a learning environment where participants are engaged, creative and motivated.
Since 1991, Kidprov has been performing their unique brand of improv comedy for thousands of kids and parents across Texas. Formed from the blend of two masters of improv and one teacher who didn’t have his masters, Kidprov infused educational objectives into their shows without losing the fun. But all the educational trappings aside, Kidprov brings the laughs. We hope you’ll join us for this fun, family friendly presentation!
Registration is required for all CGA members and non-members. Ciick here to register.

Looking forward to laughing with you on February 22nd!

We are in the final stages of the judging process. Please be patient. Sometimes the process takes longer than anticipated.
Currently, we are calculating the results and checking the entries that have been selected as finalists for plagiarism, parental involvement, and other rule violations. After that is completed, I will prepare awards certificates and deliver them to your CGA campus rep. Then, the results will be posted on the CGA website. I know you are still wondering WHEN are the results going to be posted. My hope is to have the results distributed by February 12, 2016. Sometimes there are things that happen beyond my control.
Regardless of what happens, congratulations to all of you who submitted your entries. It takes character and confidence to put your personal work out there for others to read. Don’t be deterred, our judging is subjective — you are certainly familiar with examples of others who were rejected by publishers only to later find an audience. You are amazing authors. Keep writing! We all benefit from hearing your voice.
Our book release party will be at CHS on April 11. Mark your calendar. More details to come!
