Two Years, Two Winners, One School
It's getting to be a trend. A La Crosse DARE student has again finished in the top three in the state's DARE essay contest. Second consecutive year. Piper Hatlestadt, a fifth grader at Southern Bluffs Elementary this past school year, is this year's winner. Her essay was selected by DARE officer Jon Wenger to be entered in the state competion. Last year's state winner was also a fifth grader at Southern Bluffs.
