4th-Grade Student Wins Contest

Detroit Red Wings defensemen Luke Witkowski recently visited Emerson Elementary, spending the afternoon with the fourth grade students and passing out swag from the Red Wings organization and National Coney Island. He was there because late last year student Danny Caicedo entered the 'Take a Red Wing to School' contest. He was one of two winners randomly selected.

Witkowski, who is a Michigan-native, presented Danny with a custom jersey, then spoke with both fourth grade classes. Each student was given hats, mini stick, puck and other goodies. Witkowski also signed items for each student.
