Essays build excitment for new playground

Posted: Wednesday, December 09, 2009

Soldotna Community Playground would like to thank all of the young people who participated in our essay contest. We received more than 50 entries! It was wonderful to read each one and learn how our community's kids feel about having a brand new community playground. They wrote about how the new playground will be a special place for them as well as for their families, friends and neighbors, and their own future children. It is gratifying to know that our community is blessed with such thoughtful and forward thinking young people who will one day be guiding this community.

The winners are:

Ages 3-7: first place, Elizabeth Siemion, age 7; second place, Miah Mead, age 4.

Ages 8-12: first place, Ashlyn Johnson, age 11; second place, Ashley Martin, age 11.

Ages 13-17: first place, Madeline Ransom, age 15; second place, Kyle Kanarowski, age 14.

Congratulations to all our outstanding winners!
