6th Grader Wins Card Contest
By Eric Charles May

Stewart P. Ugelow, an 11-year-old sixth grader at Murch Elementary School in Northwest was the District of Columbia winner of the 1987 Kentucky Fried Chicken/Good Housekeeping “All American Salute to Mothers” national Mother’s Day greeting card contest.

Ugelow’s card was chosen from among 3,500 entries submitted by fourth, fifth and sixth graders of the District’s public, private and parochial schools.

The front of the card features drawings of a diamond ring, a car, a fur coat, and two money bags, along with the legend, “Mom, because you deserve the best . . .”

Ugelow’s card has a poem on the inside:

“Thanks to you
I’m always being fed
So I thought you’d might like
breakfast in bed,
But I got you this card instead,
And let it be said,
That I love you,
And that is true,
Happy Mother’s Day,
Toodleloo . . . .”

This is the fifth year Kentucky Fried Chicken and Good Housekeeping have conducted the contest that selects a winner for each of the 50 states and the District.

Kentucky Fried Chicken will award Ugelow with a home computer and a special certificate of merit. The card will be displayed along with those of the state contest winners at the Empire State Building in New York City from May 7 to June 12.
