MAUGANSVILLE - The Maugansville Ruritan Club has sponsored an essay contest for fifth-grade students at Maugansville Elementary School every year for the past 16 years.
This year's essay contest topic was "What the American Flag Means to Me." Student winners, along with their parents, teachers and the school principal, were honored Feb. 21 at the club's monthly dinner meeting.
Students were asked to present their winning essays, and each received a U.S. savings bond.
First-place winner was Carly Waugh, who was given a $100 savings bond. Second-place winner was Jessica Snyder, who received a $75 savings bond. Third-place winner was Kira Duff, who received a $50 savings bond.
