TWizKid Wednesday: Lucas Ayala Petitions for Pokemon in School...and wins!

I'd like to try something new: TWizKid Wednesdays, where we recognize a remarkable young person in the media. This week it's an easy choice - we love Pokemon too!

Lucas Ayala is a third-grader in Queens, NY who wanted to overturn the ban against Pokemon cards at his school. He wrote a letter that was persuasive enough to get it done, by outlining all the positive benefits of the game. He persuaded his teacher that the cards help with math (anyone who has played can attest to that too).  As a result, Pokemon is now allowed at recess and even in some math classes, and another kid proved that he can make a difference!
