|LC Arts council announces pumpkin winners|
by Maureen Dosier | Lawrence County Arts Council
Many thanks to all the school-aged children who participated in the Pumpkin Art Contest. There were 200 entries and judging was tough for they were all so wonderfully creative. Winners include:
Trinity Academy Christian School: Natalie Rice, (K-4); Kelcie McPeek, (K-5); Evan Ratcliff (1st grade); and Brooke Tucker, (3rd grade).
Blaine Elementary School: Megan Osborne, (3rd grade); and Sammie Blackburn, (4th grade).
Louisa Elementary School Upper: Kelsey Brooke Randall, (2nd grade); Cheyanne Marcum, (3rd grade); and Lou Rae Stacy, (5th grade).
Best in Show: Jordan Harless, (4th Grade LESU).
All entries are on display for the public to enjoy this week at the Big Sandy Coffee Shop. A special presentation ceremony for the winners to receive their ribbons and savings bonds will be Saturday, Nov. 1, at 11:30 a.m. at the Big Sandy Coffee Shop.
The subject for November’s poems is being thankful and/or counting our blessings. All poems must be submitted Nov. 21 or 22 to the LCAC booth at the Winter Wonderland Festival.
The Holiday Ornament Contest is open to all students to create an original homemade holiday ornament.
The subject can be anything; let your imagination guide your creativity.
Use any materials you’d like (except candy) such as paper, cloth, felt, foam, wood, or found objects, and they can be embellished with ribbon, beads, glitter, etc.
There will be winners for each school in each grade division — first and second place for the best and the most creative.
Ornaments can be done at home or as a special classroom project and must include a tag with your name, school, grade, age and phone number.
Deadline for entries is Tuesday, Nov. 11. Submit entries to your school’s office.
There will be a special presentation ceremony/exhibit at the Winter Wonderland Festival with keepsake photos with Santa at Louisa Middle School on Saturday, Nov. 22, at 2 p.m.
