Talented Students Win Art Competition
This year’s 9th annual Art Competition was quite a success! We received many wonderful pieces of artwork from students in grades K–12 showing off their artistic abilities.
We invite you to view our online collection of participants and see the fantastic submissions we received this year.
If you submitted a story for your student, you should have received a participant certificate. If you missed it, you can download your certificate of participation, print it, personalize it by filling in your artist’s name, and pin it somewhere in your home to encourage their artistic talent.
