WESTPORT, Conn. -- Westport's Bedford Middle School students recently finished competing in the 10th annual "Penny Wars" fund-raiser.

Students in three teams collected loose change in an effort to score points. Pennies accrued points for the team while nickels, dimes and quarters subtracted points from the other two squads.

Combined, the Bedford students successfully raised a new school record of $9,721.51.

All proceeds from the competition were donated to Westport's Department of Human Services to support their "Tis the Season" holiday gift-giving program.
