The Catholic Daughters of the Americas Court Nativity of Our Lady 931, which is based at Church of the Nativity in Brockport, announced the winners of its annual Education Contest.
The competition includes contests for poetry, essays and art and is open to students in the fourth through eighth grades, as well as high-school students. Submissions for this year’s contest had to either answer the question, “Where is God in my life when I am struggling?” or explore the belief that “With God all things are possible,” which is drawn from Matthew 19:26.

Meghan Coccia, Maria O’Brocta and Emilee Canarirs, all students at St. Pius Tenth School in Chili, placed first, second and third, respectively, in the essay contest for fourth- and fifth-graders. Mikaela Sleight and Vera Huss from St. Rita School in Webster placed first and second in the fourth- and fifth-grade division of the art contest, while Avery Campolieto of Seton Catholic School placed third.
