Madison Wells, Madeline Kahn Ehrlich, and Maddie Farina, all second-graders, won awards for their writing. Helen Lui, also in second grade at Rosendale, won an award for her poster art. The contest’s theme this year was “Better Together,” and entries focused on the special relationships between kids and pets. The annual contest seeks to spread awareness about shelter pets in need of homes.
