Several CYSS management judged the display with Room 143 Full Day Strong Beginnings winning first place, Room 136 Kindergarten coming in second, and Room 116 Infants taking third place. The top three winners earned credit toward their classroom wish lists; first prize was $150; second prize was $100, and; third prize was $75.
