In celebration of the 100th day of school, an anonymous supporter sponsored an essay contest for all the elementary students.  The sponsor graciously gave $200 which was divided among fourteen writers.  The topic for the essay was “I can show love and appreciation to my ________.”  One essay from each home room was chosen and received $10.  The homeroom essays then were divided into three categories of pre-k – first grade, second – third grade and fourth – fifth grade.  A panel of judges selected one essay from each category to earn an additional $20.  The winners were announced on the 100th day of school and results are as follows:
