2019 Holiday Essay Winners

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (DECEMBER 19, 2019) — Winners of the Williamsport Area School District Education Foundation's Holiday Essay Contest enjoyed a night of celebration on Wednesday.

The group of winners received a Holiday Tour of Lights on Williamsport's trolley, thanks to River Valley Transit. After the ride, they and their families heard a story, got a free book, and received cookies and hot cocoa, prepared and served by Williamsport Area High School culinary arts students.

A special thank-you to the James V. Brown Library for allowing the use of the rotunda to host the post-tour reception. Also, thank you to the district's Title 1 Department for giving each student "Mr. Willowby's Christmas Tree," and for providing light necklaces.
