Three Herkimer eighth-graders recently received recognition for their entries in a statewide essay contest.

Emily Marquissee, Lyla Williams and Gabrielle Yakimovich received Honorable Mentions for their submissions to the New York Conference of Mayors “If I Were Mayor …” essay contest.

The third annual contest, which was open to any eighth grade student currently enrolled in a school located in a city or village in New York state, asked students to explain what they would do, how they would do it and why they would take these actions for their community.
