BOW, N.H. — Students at New Hampshire’s Crotched Mountain School in Greenfield have won top honors in a maple syrup contest for young people.

Sisters Madison and Olivia Dunne, of Newton, took top honors in the New Hampshire Maple Producers Association contest for the Walter A. Felker Memorial Award.

The awards are the culmination of an annual program which encourages K-12 schools and students across the state to take a hands-on approach to learning about New Hampshire’s maple tradition. Earlier this spring, students tapped trees, collected sap and boiled it down to make the syrup.

They submitted samples that were judged at the organization’s annual summer meeting in July.
