City Reflections entries are still being judged, but a 6th-grade Reflections entrant has just been announced as the winner of a different competition, a photography contest run by Alexandria’s Parks and Recreation Department.

Daniel Dawit, a student at Francis Hammond Middle School, took top honors in the Recreation, Parks, and Cultural Activities photography contest, being named Best Overall Winner as well as winning the Recreation category of the contest. His photograph, “Molly at Chinquapin Garden,” was not one of his entries in the city’s Reflections contest.

He wins $250 in gift certificates from Alexandria RPCA.

Congratulations to Daniel! And good luck to him and all of our entrants in the city Reflections contest!
