SPRINGFIELD —  First prize in the Springfield School Christmas decoration contest was awarded to Kathy Stocking for her “gilt bird cage” with Christmas flowers inside and colored balls hanging from it.

Second prize was awarded to Diane Truax for her miniature, foil Christmas tree with miniature gifts under it.

Honorable mention was won by Mary Van Winkler for a wreath, Helen Cook for a cookie angel, Gail Loveland for a wreath, and Donna Westerman for a candelabra and greens centerpiece.

Mrs. Harland Dunckel, Mrs. Edwin Young, and Mrs. Glen Gray were the judges. The contest began as a homemaking project, but aroused enough interest to have it open to any student interested.

Prizes were awarded at a school assembly.
