gold-medal2

On Tuesday, March 7th, we were delighted to honor the winners in our 31st annual Poetry and Essay Contest. The students read their winning entries to an audience of family members, teachers, principals, and club members. Dr. Monica Browne, Superintendent of Upper Saddle River Schools, spoke of the excellence of the students’ entries and of our club’s long standing support of  writing in the schools. She awarded each student with a congratulatory letter from the Board of Education. Jennifer Kenny, Club Education and Contest Chair,  awarded Certificates and Barnes and Noble Gift Cards to the winners on behalf of our club. The students’ work will be on display at the Upper Saddle River Library for the next two months. Winners names will also be engraved on the plaques in the schools. Congratulations to the winners–and to all those students who entered the 2017 contest!
