Students could write an essay or create an advertisement/cartoon.  Regan Gindlesperger, eighth grade, placed second with an essay about volunteering at the Pennsylvania Maple Festival. She is a member of the Meyersdale Middle School Newspaper staff. Isabella Friend, grade six, received Honorable Mention honors for an essay on helping others. The efforts of both students were featured in the March 26 edition of the newspaper.
