The students were tasked with creating a poster that raises the awareness of plastic littering in the waterways. Forest Avenue fourth grader Abby Paolillo was awarded first place and a $500 scholarship, and fourth grader Alexi Sirris was awarded second place and $250 scholarship. Their posters will be on display in public outreach programs and town facilities.
