Waverly Park fourth-grader Coral Roditi was a winner in the 2017 Humane Society essay contest. In her essay, Coral imagined what she would do to help animals if she had super powers. She was invited to attend an award ceremony on May 17.
The contest was cosponsored by the Humane Society of New York, the Nassau County Executive’s Office and the Nassau County SPCA, in recognition of Be Kind to Animals month.
“We received hundreds of well-written and heartfelt essays from Nassau County students,” said Humane Society representative Elinor Molbegott. “It was truly an uplifting experience to read them.”
