Local Shriners honor circus essay winners

The Huntington County Hapzim Shrine Club recently honored three third-grade students who wrote essays about what they liked best during their trip to the circus.

The best essays from each of the third-grade classes were delivered to the Shriners, who chose three grand-prize winners.

The winners are Kairi Daniels, Lincoln Elementary; Hannah Skiles, Northwest Elementary; and Lilly Hopkins, Flint Springs Elementary. Each student received a gift bag for their prize.

Judging was primarily on content, but in case of equal merit, neatness, punctuation and spelling were considered.
