I had the pleasure of awarding 4th-grader Miss Ada Eichelbrenner of Sherwood Elementary a $25 Half-Price Books gift certificate for her outstanding 1st place essay in the 3rd-5th grade category. We chose her entry because of the way she wrapped her knowledge of local watersheds and a simple call to action into a really creative and fun one-page essay. Awesome work, Ada! Behind every good student is a fabulous teacher, and in this case it was Wendy Galluppi, who also received a $25 gift certificate to Half-Price Books. Take a few minutes to read Ada' s essay below!
Thanks to all of those who participated in the 2013 contests!
