Melanie Kardos named Spring Stroll's student chalk winner

Ridgefield young artists turned out in droves during this weekend's Spring Stroll.

From the dozens of drawers who lined Main Street Saturday, a three-judge panel selected Melanie Kardos as the first-place winner.

There was a second place tie given to Mackenzie Fowler for her "Ridgefield Tiger" drawing, and Camryn Liem for her "Flowers with Brick Wall" creation. 

Bianca Labuschagne's "Peacock" received honorable mention. 

Emily Brown and Sofia Daigle dual project "Flower Pots" also scored honorable mention from the judges — State Rep. John Frey, First Selectman Rudy Marconi, and Pamela Stoddart of the Ridgefield Guild of Artists.
