Third place winner Jacqueline of Plum Creek Elementary received a $20 gift card and an award certificate. Second place winner Braden of Navarro Elementary received a $30 gift card and an award certificate. First place winner Gabrielle, also of Navarro Elementary, received a $50 gift card and award certificate. All Caldwell County third graders are eligible for the award, subject to their school district’s decision to participate, and are chosen by a select panel of fourth-grade teachers.
