Third grade: Nathaniel Powers’s class at Randolph Elementary School in Arlington and Dee Murphy’s class at Swans Creek Elementary School in Dumfries. Fourth grade: Michael Gee’s class at Miner Elementary School in the District and Jessica O’Roark’s class at Berwyn Heights Elementary in Berwyn Heights. Fifth grade: Marie Potochney’s library class at St. Bernadette School in Springfield and Stephanie Hagber’s class at Rolling Knolls Elementary School in Annapolis. Sixth grade: Catherine Odey’s class at Rocky Hill Middle School in Clarksburg and Bill Turgeon’s class at River Bend Middle School in Sterling.
