The Philaco Education Committee is pleased to announce the winners of the third annual Fourth Grade Essay Contest.

The topic for this year's contest was “If you had to move away from this area, what would you miss most about Franklin County?” The students wrote their essays in class as part of their work to develop writing skills for fourth grade writing FCAT assessment.

Taking first place and the $50 top prize was Brycin McCray Huckeba, a student in Donna Barber’s class at Franklin County School.

Second place, and a $30 prize, went to Tina Granger, a student of Lynn Clark’s at the Franklin County School.

Third place, and $20, went to Hollie Larkin, a student in Laura King’s class at the Franklin County School.

Honorable Mention went to Franklin County School’s Ashton Topham, in Barber's class; Katie Cox, in Clark's class; and Camille Davis, in King's class; the First Baptist Christian School’s Daylyn Creamer, in Danielle Layne's class; and the ABC School’s Alex Joanos, in Lindsay Bockelman's class.

“The essays were good and fun to read, and many focused on the love the students have for the natural wonders and wildlife of our area and on the excellent fishing, hunting, beaches on the Gulf and the rivers, and seafood they enjoy,” said Education Chairman Susan Antekeier.
