Mom Wins Essay Contest For School That Is Slated For Closure

KENNEBUNK, MAINE (CBS) – Ann Charlton from Kennebunk entered an essay contest and won.

The beneficiary of the $5,000 prize money is the Sea Road School that is slated for closure.

Her essay was about her work introducing science, technology, engineering and math into the community.

WBZ-TV’s Jonathan Elias reports

She’s doing this by using Lego to teach young kids including her kids.

The story gets better.

Now she could be in line for a $10,000 grant for a national contest.

Again the money will go to the school.

The hope is to get all that attention so the school won’t close.
