WHIZ and Zandex teamed up at the beginning of September to honor the special bond bewteen the two generations by sponsoring an essay contest. The contest was a success, as more then 150 essays were submitted in four age categories. While every child's essay was special, one displayed loving qualities, so much so that it is the grand prize essay winner. Eight and a half year-old Justino Thomas wrote his essay about his grandmother, Zanesville resident Pauline Schultz. Justino's essay emphasized the relationship of the family abd how important grandparents are in children's lives.
