Kaylan Mosser’s love and admiration for her pitbull-mix dog, Jasper, has paid cash dividends.

The Baker Middle School eighth-grader’s essay about what she has learned through her relationship with Jasper won first place in her division of the Oregon Humane Society Be Kind to Animals Poster and Story Contest.

Kaylan won a $100 gift card for her story and was invited to attend the “A’Cat’Emy Awards”  banquet in Portland, said teacher Chelsea Hurliman.
