PORT HENRY - In honor of Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, Mountain Lake Services sponsored an essay contest open to all students within Essex County. In an effort to raise awareness, all essays were asked to be focused on the theme of intellectual and developmental disabilities. The three winners are John Crossman, Jr., Ticonderoga High School; Sage Allott, Elizabethtown-Lewis Central; and Alaina Rushford, Keeseville Elementary. The winners of the contest were honored and presented with their awards throughout April. We thank all of the area students who participated in this year's contest for their efforts.
