Briarwood Elementary 4th grader Ardra Arwin has won the 3rd-5th grade division in this year’s Washington State PTA Essay Contest! Arda's essay, titled “My hero who inspired me to be who I am,” is about her dearly departed grandmother, a cardiothoracic anesthesiologist who helped provide no-cost surgeries to many people in need. 

The essay contest is open to K-12 students statewide each year. It’s an opportunity for students to celebrate the important role models in their lives. Congratulations, Ardra!
