""The Lackawanna Community Juneteenth Committee sponsored a Juneteenth essay contest for students in Grades 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12. Students in grades 3-5 were tasked to write an essay on the topic, "What is Juneteenth and what does it mean to you and your family?"

Winners were recognized at the second annual Juneteenth celebration on Wasson Avenue. The following students from Mrs. McDonald's and Mrs. Kwiatkowski's Martin Road Elementary homerooms were recognized for their essay submissions: Mahjabin Ahmed, Malyun Ahmed, Arihana Anderson, Adrian Garcia Molina, Kadijatu Jalloh, Bre'onca Jenkins, and Barood Saif. The grand-prize winner in the grades 3-5 category, also from Mrs. McDonald's and Mrs. Kwiatkowski's team, was Belqis Gobah. You may read her winning essay here.

Congratulations to these students for a job well done!
