A fifth-grade class at Otto Petersen Elementary School won a recent community service competition by bringing in 81 donations for the Columbia Humane Society.

School Counselor Jessy Gretzinger said Courtney Scott's fifth-grade class was able to gather a number of needed materials for the humane society, such as towels, food, toys and even money.
