Three Bradshaw Mountain High School students won cash prizes for their essays on how they would spend $1 million, the prizes not quite to the amount they hoped to spend in their essays.

First place winner in the BMHS Connection, a non-profit booster club, essay contest was Nina Terrinoni with her essay titled A Million Dollars, A Million Duns. Terrinoni would use the money to build a quiet, peaceful ranch in Oregon called Heart and Hooves where she would operate a nonprofit horse sanctuary with lush fields and a 34-stall barn. She won $100 for her essay.

Kylie Morris, second place with a $50 prize, wants to help pigs fly and to create parachutes for cats and dogs when it rains. This would require adopting several hundred cats, dogs and pigs, and renting two C-130 military airplanes to fly over the Western and Eastern United States. Morris feels that people seeing such a "divine occurrence" would find homes for these animals.

Kaitlyn DeHerrera said she would use the money to earn a master's degree in psychology; to venture into the world and travel to Greece, Rome, Brazil and Disneyworld; and to help people by donating to charities, including House of Ruth Pregnancy Care. She won $25.

This is the third annual essay contest co-sponsored by the BMHS Connection and Robert Shegog, a Connection member and substitute teacher for the Humboldt Unified School District. Judges did not know the names of students, and rated the essays on creativity with personal style coming through, consistent organization of thoughts, clarity of ideas and, of course, proper grammar and spelling. The contest is open to all BMHS students.
