A Certificate of Excellence was presented to Mifflin Elementary third grade student Owen Hendershott for earning the next highest votes to appear in the Richland County Children Services annual calendar.
The 6th Annual Billboard and Calendar contest is open to third grade students in Richland County and is sponsored by the agency as part of Child Abuse Prevention Month in April. Over 200 entries were submitted into the contest. The theme of this year's contest was "When I Grow Up I Want To Be..." Owen wants to be a zoologist.
RCCS employees judged more than 200 entries from third grade classes invited to participate.
Quintin Roberts, a third grade student at St. Peter's Elementary & Montessori School, was the first place winner. Quintin's drawing showed his desire to be a police officer.
Richland County Children Services decided to have the second and third place winners also appear on a billboard. The second place winner was Remington Hedrick from St. Peter's Elementary and the third place winner was Owen Drexel from Mansfield Christian.
All four students drawings will be in the agency's 2019-2020 calendar along with Beckett Slaughter, Stingel Elementary; Kaelin Scott, Stingel Elementary; Jewells Sewell, Sherman Elementary; Shiloh Walter, Mansfield Spanish Immersion; Hayden Mowry, Bellville Elementary; Dajsia Narvaez, Richland School of Academic Arts; Izaya Reynolds, Plymouth Shiloh Elementary School and Caleb W. Cole, St. Peter’s Elementary.
The calendars will be distributed by Richland County Children Services during the Richland County Fair and other community events.
