Three Monroe County students received top honors in the 15th Congressional District Arts Competition, U.S. Rep. John Dingell s office said yesterday.
Rebekah Smeltzer of Jefferson High School in Monroe took top honors. Erin Greener of Summerfield High School in Petersburg took second place, and Michelle Johnson, also of Summerfield High, finished third.
