Default I Won a Logo Contest! ...But They Want More Help?

I recently learned of a local logo contest in which two related organizations were in need of an original design. They both deal with very similar issues (primarily, child support), so I came up with three concepts, with several variations each, that were basically interchangeable between the two organizations.

I was happy to learn on Monday that my first logo idea was chosen. As per the contest rules, I will receive two $100 gift cards for signing the release of my design. However, the woman contacting me regarding my logo has mentioned that the other winning logo was hand drawn and needs to be cleaned up (vectorized, I imagine) and asked if I could do this. I'd like to do it, so that I had a hand in both logos and just for fun, but should I ask for compensation for working on a second logo? Maybe I should just be happy I won at all, but I also want to uphold some value for my skills and not offer them pro bono outside of clearly outlined paid projects.
