POMEROY — Approximately 388 Meigs Intermediate School students participated in a poster contest for the “Character Counts” program.
This contest is part of the activities announced by the Meigs County Commissioners during the Character Counts week proclamation. The students were challenged to create a poster to capture the six pillars of Character Counts: caring, citizenship, trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, and fairness.
Three individuals outside of the school were asked to judge the posters from each grade.
The top five contest winners from each grade received a gift bag that included a “Character Counts” t-shirt and other items featuring the “Character Counts” theme. Additionally, their posters are proudly on display in the main hallway of the Meigs Intermediate School.
Winners were as follows,
Third Grade — first place, Brooklyn Wolfe-Madison; second place, Kyra Powell; third place, Mason Rathburn; fourth place, Walker Mayer; and fifth place, Kymber Mitch.
Fourth Grade — first place, Kody Hubbard; second place, Jessica Workman; third place, Jasmine Goss; fourth place, Kadynce Wolfe; and fifth place, Mycah Farley.
Fifth Grade — first place, Olivia Goble; second place, Jazlyn Hall; third place, Jade Jewell; fourth place, Layla Walter; and fifth place, Annika McKinney.
