Falling just short last year, Taylor Stith was determined to win first place in the 2008 Adopt-A-Highway poster contest.
That determination paid off when the junior at Williamstown High School was selected the winner of the 15 to 17-year-old age group.
Stith placed second in the same category in 2008.
“I was really surprised,” she said. “I looked at everybody’s work who was in the class and they were 10 times better than they were last year. I was thinking the whole time that I wasn’t going to place. I was really excited.”
