All four Jamestown High School classes recently used their creative energy to help the City of Jamestown brighten up the streets by decorating four planters at the corner of Third and Pine Streets.
This is the second year for the decorating contest, sponsored by the Department of Public Works. The holiday planters were judged during the Downtown Holiday Parade and the JHS Freshmen class was awarded $100 for their efforts. JHS freshmen will donate the money to the school’s Penny Wars, which is an annual December event at JHS that benefits a person or family at the school that is in need.
“It is good to do activities like this because it shows that the next generation is getting involved in the city and it just helps add to the Christmas spirit downtown,” said JHS senior Kiana Vullo.
