3rd-6th Art

Art Contest Winners!

Thank you for all of those that participated.  Once again you amazed us all! You were super creative and competitive.  The competition was very close in many grades. Sometimes down to one vote! Prizes will go to the overall winner for each grade plus three additional prizes per grade being most creative or unique, most colorful, and most accurate.  Categories were not initially planned for this year but the projects that won fell right into them and this was a different year because we had to judge by pictures which made the contest very difficult!

Runners Up are those who were close in the competition and Honorable Mention received one or more votes from judges!

****You are all winners because you worked hard and created something!  This is one of the unique characteristics that we receive from God Himself....CREATIVITY!  Always remember in art contests, it is all about what the judges like!  Art is an opinion!


Winner of 1st place over the 3rd-6th grade goes to:
