FARMINGTON – On Thursday Feb. 28, the Mallett WinterKids Committee was honored by reps from the organization for their efforts in the 5 week competition.

Of the 31 participating schools across Maine’s 16 counties, W.G. Mallett earned plaques for the ‘Spirit Award’ the ‘Best Family Engagement Event,’ and a check for $250. The team planned and engaged students and families in over 25 different winter, nutrition, and literacy-related activities during the 5 weeks. The Family Outdoor Winter Fun night drew over 300 family members for sliding, games, flashlight book walk and a bonfire. Pictures from the dog sledding event held as part of the series of events, will be used in WinterKids promotional materials.
