Team SISD students will have the opportunity to foster their creativity and love for literacy at the 4th annual SISD Fandom & Comic Expo from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nov. 16 at Pebble Hills High School.

SISD middle and high school students are invited to the free event. Out-of-district sixth through 12th grade students also can participate in the competitions for a $5 entrance fee.

The unique event will feature a day of fun appearances from more than 35 vendors including local indie comic artists and authors. Other special guests will include the Imperial Border Squad, EP Ghostbusters, and the Amigo Man.

Students will engage in cosplay activities, muggle Quidditch, fandom trivia, card tournaments, comic sketch-off, escape rooms and more.

New this year will be the introduction of SISD’s first eSports League. They will battle it out, live in a single elimination tournament throughout the day. This program is designed to help provide a framework for student gamers that focuses on teamwork, responsibility, and social/emotional learning.

The first 500 students will receive a lanyard and a badge. To learn more about SISD Fandom & Comic Expo, visit the event website at http://www.sisd.net/fandomcomicexpo.
