Valley Grange Master Jim Annis and Program Director Walter Boomsma were at PCES in Guilford on Friday, March 22 to satisfy a lot of kids’ curiousity! A few weeks ago third and fourth graders had made a big effort to design the ads that would ultimately be selected to appear in the special Newspapers in Education Section of the March 27th edition of the Piscataquis Observer.

The winning third grade ad was drawn by Matthew Burdin and the winning fourth grade ad was drawn by Nyla Larrabee. “The judges had a real hard time,” Mr. Boomsma told the students. “If you did your very best, we think you’re a winner.”

Certificates were given to third graders Isabel Bussman and Qianna Ann Nadeau for second and third place. Fourth graders Madeline Taylor and Avery Herrick received similar recognition. PCES Art Teacher Mrs. Daniels was recognized for her support of the students and the program.

None of the winning students were prepared to give an acceptance speech, but each left with a smile. Mr. Annis noted that Valley Grange “really enjoys the many projects we do with the school. You guys make us proud.”

Winning ads will also appear in Valley Grange publications and flyers throughout the year.
