Lincoln Pumpkin Character Contest Winners

Lincoln Media Specialist, Lauren Capuano coordinated this annual contest for students to decorate a pumpkin like their favorite book character. K-2 entries were able to complete their creation with their family. Students in 3-5 were only allowed to get some assistance if needed, but directed to do most of the work themselves.

Sixty five pumpkins from students and faculty were displayed in the library and judged by various people at S-G. Everyone did such a nice job. Congratulations to these following winners!
