CHSD Fifth Graders Honored for Coast Day Essays

Four fifth-graders from the Cape Henlopen School District were recognized on Sunday at Coast Day in Lewes, DE. Coast Day is the annual open house of the University of Delaware's College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment—a leader in interdisciplinary, experiential teaching and research—and Delaware Sea Grant.

The essay contest asked fifth graders to answer the question: “How would you plan a robotics mission to discover new things about Delaware’s land, water, and air?” Winners received Bookstore gift cards for $100, $75, and $50 for first, second, and third place. Honorable mentions were also awarded, and the teachers of the students will receive a gift toward classroom supplies.

From Rehoboth Elementary School, James Falk in Mrs. Subrick’s class took home second place, Brady Kosc in Mrs. Kisiel’s class took third place, and Savannah Montgomery also in Mrs. Kisiel’s class received an Honorable Mention. Shelby Manlove, from Shields Elementary, in Ms. Townsend’s class, also received Honorable Mention for her essay.

Congratulations to James, Brady, Savannah, and Shelby!
