Students Win Essay Contest

By Mrs. Burnham
Three Ashford School students won prizes for their entries in the CHET Dream Big Essay Contest. They had to write about what they would do after college to change the world. All three represented Ashford School well at a special awards ceremony at Renschler Field. They met the State Treasurer, Denise Napier, and were praised for their achievements.
Winners were:
A.J. - 5th grader (Mr. Schrieber's class) with a piece about how he would become a professor and help college students
Angela - 5th grader (Mrs. Burnham's class)-with a piece about saving sea turtles
Dakota - 4th grader (Ms. Rioux's class) - with a piece about opening a soup kitchen
Congratulations to these students who won cash prizes, and congratulations to all of those students who entered the contest.
