News Image 6Fourth graders at Gansevoort Elementary recently had a cool assignment from their teachers, Suzanne Varano, Cheryl Corr and Michael Scerra. They had to write a persuasive essay—a unit in their writing curriculum— in an effort to persuade the owners of Dippin Donuts in Rome, John and Helen Zourdos to make their donut flavor! "Students had to write an introduction, three body paragraphs (taste, appearance and theme) and a conclusion.

Fourth grade teachers, Varano, Corr and Scerra picked out the winner and then had to be sure that Dippin Donuts could actually make it. The winner was Julianna Nasto with her campfire theme donut which was revealed on June 19th. The no hole donut featured graham crackers and chocolate topping with marshmallow inside.


Dimitrios Zourdos, the owner’s son was on hand to announce the winner and of course bring in the winning donuts for the fourth graders to enjoy. Don’t get too excited though, the campfire donut was only made one time for the contest.

ESSAY by Julianna Nasto:

Campfire Donut 


Are you tired of plain chocolate donuts and want to try something new? Well, here is your chance! The campfire donut is colorful and delicious. When you eat it, it will feel like you are at camp.


I got the campfire donut’s name because my donut has chocolate, graham cracker and marshmallows. I love to go camping and make s’mores. You will feel like you are eating a s’more fresh from the campfire!


My donut looks like a s’more right when you see it. It is a chocolate donut with graham cracker crumbs all over the donut. There is a special surprise in the middle! When you bite into it, there are lightly roasted marshmallows and there is no hole in the middle.


This donut will be the best sweet treat ever! The frosting is creamy chocolate, and the cake part is the best, most delicious vanilla. The surprise marshmallow filling will ooze out. The crunchy part of the donut is the graham cracker. YUM!


As you can see, the campfire donut will be the best donut to fill your appetite, and make you feel like you are camping!
