To commemorate 100 years since women first gained the right to vote in New York, The Main Street WIRE sponsored an essay contest for Island children, asking them to write about a woman, from the past or present, who inspires them.
Our congratulations go to PS/IS 217 students, Mariam Khelashvili and Saki Imamura, who submitted the winning entries for the K-3rd grade and 4th-8th grade divisions respectively! Well Done!
