MAES students win newspaper

Two Meyersdale Area Elementary School students were winners of the 2019 Somerset Daily American Newspapers In Education Contest. The theme of this year’s contest was based on volunteerism. Students could write an essay or create an advertisement/cartoon.  Natalya-Rae Scott, grade 2, created a cartoon depicting her helping her aunt. Scott received Honorable Mention for her fine work. She is a student of Mrs. Trulick. Aidan Mosholder, grade 5, wrote a essay about helping a friend in FFA. He is a student of Mrs. McNelly. He also received Honorable Mention honors. The efforts of both students were featured in the March 26 edition of the newspaper.
