Three BJA students were selected as finalists in the Crayola “Empowering Students Through Creative Leadership” Contest. Their original 2-D artwork will be displayed at Crayola’s national art expo. Students competed in grade groups visualizing what creative leadership means to them.
The students will receive $200 worth of Crayola products as well as a plaque featuring a replica of the student’s winning artwork. The teacher of the winning students will also receive $200 worth of Crayola products. Congratulations to Sandy Mehus who instructs our elementary and middle school art students.
The three original art pieces will become part of the permanent student collection that will hang at the Department of Education in Washington, DC, and in the department’s regional offices. The following BJA students were among the twenty-five chosen from 2500 entries:
Josiah Pait, 7th grade
Charlotte Moore, 7th grade
Bennett Stephens, 6th grade
Seventh grader, Bella Sanders, also was selected for her piece to be used for the teacher resources on the Crayola website. She will receive the same prize package as the other winners.
