Bayonne High School sophomore Michelle Sandhu recently placed third in the 2008 Hispanic Heritage Photography and Essay Contest.
The contest, sponsored by Ford Motor Company and Community Services and the New York Times Newspapers in Education Program, challenged students in grades 9 through 12 to select a person, place or event that represents Hispanic culture and has either impacted them personally or been significant to the community.
Sandhu, who studies Spanish at Bayonne High, won third place honors for her photographs and essay about Rincon de Espana Restaurant on Broadway in Bayonne.
