On the Road to Award Prizes

Posted by | January 14, 2013

Congratulations, Nick PratoLast week, I drove with Karrie Schwaab (Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge) to Yarmouth, Castine, and Holden to deliver the iPad, digital camera, binoculars, and bookstore gift certificate to the top four prize winners in our Silent Spring essay contest. Honorable mention students were also recognized with copies of Silent Spring, and all of the seventh graders who participated in the contest were awarded certificates of achievement.

Parents, teachers, administrators, and fellow students gathered at each award ceremony to learn about Rachel Carson, hear the talented prize winners read their essays aloud, and witness the exciting receipt of awards. A great many proud smiles and congratulatory remarks filled each school's walls! Television and newspaper crews were on hand to capture some of the excitement:
