Winning 1st place was RA 7th grader, Flynn Roulstone. His sister, Samantha Roulstone, RA 5th grader, was awarded 2nd place.

The contest, which ran February 1st through February 26th, challenged local students to plan and create a fabulous heart which they designed to show their love and support of their hometown, Phoenixville. Contestants then displayed that heart in the front window of their home and posted a photo to the “Together We Can Raise the Village” Facebook page.

CTC Community Mobilizer and contest facilitator, Dolores (Dolly) Winston said that the Roulstones’ entries were selected as winners based on the creativity and town-spirit reflected in their “hearts”. About the “I LOVE Phoenixville” contest, Ms. Winston said, "The competition was intended to bring optimism to the Phoenixville community during a time when most folks are social distancing by remaining in their homes. We hoped that the show of community spirit would lift up the moods of both the contestants and anyone who would see the hearts while driving by.”

The 1st Place winner received a $50 gift card, with Flynn Roulstone, 1st Place Entry2nd Place winning a $25 gift card. Yesterday, Flynn and Samantha Roulstone were presented their awards by Ms. Winston at the Renaissance Academy, Phoenixville, PA.
