Students were asked to write a 300-word essay on the topic “Important Women in CT history and how their contributions to the state and nation affect me.” Teachers selected the winners, and Naugatuck Valley Savings and Loan provided $25 Visa gift cards as prizes. Each student was also presented with a citation by Kelly and Perillo.

“These young writers all shared impressive and inspiring stories,” said Kelly. “Each essay offered a unique look at our history through the eyes of a young person in today’s world. I congratulate them all on their amazing work and hope they will continue writing, expressing their ideas and honing their skills and talents.”
