OLEAN, NY - Four students from the Allegany-Limestone Central School District were winners in this year's short story contest sponsored by the Friends of the Olean Library.

First place awards were given to Katie Riley, grade six, and Makayla Criss, grade nine. No entries were received from grades seven or eight.

Honorable mention awards went to Michaella Rhodes and Emily Ensell, both grade six.

Contest chair Carole McNall said because of the steady decrease in the number of students, the Friends board will be considering this summer whether to continue the contest. Friends also sponsors bookmark and poetry contests during the school year.
