Blog : Essay Contest Winners!

By Katie | Aug 27, 2014 | in

Wow! We are blown away by all of the great essays that were sent to us from children all over New England! From composting and recycling, to riding their bikes with their parents to farm stands, to picking up beaches and even adopting a bat, these kids have been busy bettering the environment for all of us.

We had such a tough time choosing a winner that we ultimately landed on 3 winners (all in different age divisions). We would like to extend our congratulations to Nicole Allen, age 11; Eben Desilva, age 10; and Quetzal Frey, age 8 (Quetzal's essay is photographed below)!

Thank you to all who shared their experiences with us. You're all fantastic story tellers and even greater environmental stewards! Keep up the great work!

We will post all of the winning essays in the coming days... and all will be displayed at today's Green Families Celebration and Farmer's Market in Kittery from 4-7 p.m. We hope to have some of our entrants read their essays out loud to inspire more families to go green!
