South Mountain School fourth grade student Ryan Saurborn was declared a winner in the “My Essex County” fourth grade poster contest.
The contest is open to fourth graders throughout Essex County and is sponsored by the Essex County Clerk’s Office to commemorate County Government week. Students are asked to express the history, beauty and people of Essex County through art.
There were 687 posters submitted by fourth grade students from 42 grade schools throughout Essex County. County Clerk Christopher Durkin hosted the top 15 winners at a reception last week at the Hall of Records in Newark.
