St. Bridget School has earned the distinction of winning the Cheshire Lions Club’s annual “Peace Poster” contest two years in a row after it was announced last month that eighth grader Lila Kiernan took first place at the Club Level and also at state Lions Club Level. Kiernan and other entrants in the state contest were honored at the District 23 MidWinter Conference, held at the Wyndham Hotel on Feb. 21.
Club Secretary Nancy DeFrancesco presented Kiernan with the certificate. Second prize winner (and last year’s first place winner) Shreeya Gomathinayagam, and third place winner Francesco DeVivro were also honored. Both are students at St. Bridget as well.
