BELMAR/LAKE COMO, NJ — Students from Belmar and Lake Como showed off their artistic and mathematic skills in the Belmar Police Department’s latest Facebook contests.

Drawing their favorite at-home activities, Belmar Elementary School sixth-grader Grace McKenna took first place in her division category with a colorful rendering of baking cookies and cupcakes. And among younger students, BES kindergartner Molly Levis illustrated how she likes to spend time with sister Morgan for her award-winning entry.

BES fourth-grader Owen Coffey emerged as the winner in the Starburst guess challenge. His guess of 816 in the large container was only four more than the actual count of 812.
