State and national Youth Awards were announced at a recent state garden club convention. The National Garden Clubs and their affiliate organizations offer educational contests for children at the pre-school, elementary, middle and high school levels. The First-Place winners of the Bar Harbor Garden Club (BHGC) competitions went on to compete within the Garden Club Federation of Maine (GCFM), New England Region (NER) and National Garden Clubs, Inc. (NGC).
Callan Eason (6th grader) won both state & regional First-Place awards, and a national Certificate of Commendation for her sculpture entry. We had three students win both state and regional First-Place Poetry contests: Taylor Ehrlich (3rd grader), Peyton Mae Hanson (1st grader) and Danny Mobraaten (4th grader).
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE WINNERS!
—BHGC Youth Activities, Co-Chairs are Pam Bowie and Cheryl Bowers.
