Christine Dodd, an 11th grader at Windsor Central High School near Binghamton, recently participated in WSKG's essay contest on sustainable communities. This Black Friday, we're bringing you the first of a series of stories that we're producing with those students.

Dodd wrote about the changes she's seen growing up in Windsor, N.Y., especially as more people have started leaving the town to shop.


The Innovation Trail's Emma Jacobs went on a tour of Windsor with Dodd, starting at the Big M market just off Main Street.

You can read Dodd's entire winning essay, below.
