Third-grade students at Amite Elementary Magnet School recently completed a family turkey project.

Students were sent home with a template of a turkey and encouraged to work as a family to decorate the turkey. The turkeys were then displayed in the auditorium, and students from all grade levels were invited to vote on their favorite, a news release said. Winners were Shanya Washington, first place, “Warrior Pride Turkey”; Kei’Jhariah Varnado, second place, “Guardian Angel Turkey”; and Schariah Brumfield, third place, “Minion Turkey.” The winners received gift certificates to McDonald’s.
