The Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce announced the results of the second annual Halloween Window Painting Contest, and some Weston students were among the winners.

Judges Kathie Bennewitz (town curator), Peter Van Heerden (director of the Westport Arts Center) and Betsy Pollack (publisher of Our Town Crier) had to vote a few times to break a tie in a very close competition. Ms. Benewitz said this was “fun to do and great to see the faces and smiles behind the winning windows.”

“This event really brought the community and our businesses together,” said Matthew Mandell, executive director of the Chamber. “The kids had big smiles, but the merchants even more so. They all loved giving this opportunity to the kids.”

The winners were given an award certificate and a $25 gift card to Top This Frozen Yogurt, one of the participating merchants.

Winners included Danielle Spadacenta of Bedford Middle School for Calises Food Market, Danielle King, Heather LaPalme and Kayleigh Levent of Weston Middle School for Westport Yarns, Kaitlyn Comerford of Hurlbutt Elementary School for Brooks Brothers, and Shealeigh and Courtlyn Crombie and Molly Liles of Greens Farms Elementary School for Matsu Sushi.
