Lincoln Street Elementary Wins the
Tucker Mountain Challenge
Students from Keith Schmitt's 4th grade class at Lincoln Street Elementary School in Exeter recently received their $2,000 prize for winning the 2018 Tucker Mountain Challenge. Their quart of maple syrup was judged on density, color and taste. Representatives from the New Hampshire Maple Producers Association and New Hampshire Agriculture in the Classroom were on hand for the presentation. Mrs. Estle's 4th grade class joined the festivities to be recognized for their help with the project. When asked about the process, students agreed they had the most fun collecting the sap. Along the way, they learned about temperature, climate, density, history and more. The prize money will be used for a new finisher and a new filter canister to supplement their new evaporator. Congratulations to everyone!
