A team of students from Lee Elementary won the Eastmont School District straw-tower competition Tuesday at Eastmont High School. Dozens of kindergarten and first-grade students from five elementary school competed in the event. Students had 75 plastic straws, a roll of masking tape, scissors and 30 minutes to build the tallest free-standing tower. The winning Lee team was made up of first grader Alexis Garcia and kindergartners Keith Johnson, Addi Donaldson and Sarah Estes. They were coached by second-grade teacher Sue Heitzman. Their tower was 83-inches tall. They won two medals for being school and district champs, along with $10 cash and a gift certificate.
