Kara Powers and Takoda Liberty, center, hold up a sign they and their third-grade classmates made for the WinterKids Winter Games opening ceremonies at Walton Elementary School in Auburn on Monday. Walton is one of two schools from Androscoggin County selected to compete against 30 others across Maine during the four-week challenge. Students from each county in Maine will participate in physical challenges centered around literacy, nutrition and family engagement. “This is a wonderful way to engage students, staff and families in activities that promote physical activity and nutrition,” Principal Mike Davis said. The school that wins the gold medal will receive $5,000. (Sun Journal photo by Daryn Slover)
