Four Atlanta Public Schools students have been selected as winners of the APS Winter Card Contest, and were honored recently by the Atlanta Board of Education and APS Superintendent Dr. Meria J. Carstarphen.
More than 100 students throughout the school district submitted drawings and paintings, and Dr. Carstarphen and her senior staff narrowed the list to four. The student designs were then converted into the school district’s official greeting cards.
The winning entries were created by:
First Place – Elizabeth Mori, North Atlanta High School
Second Place – Pierce Mower, Parkside Elementary School
Third Place – Kamryn Smith, Scott Elementary School
Fourth Place – Colin Forsyth, North Atlanta High School
“The contest is critical because it gives every student who chooses to participate the opportunity to use visual art to communicate an idea and cultivate their voice as they express themselves,” said APS Fine Arts Coordinator Dr. Betsy Eppes. “We have very creative and talented students throughout our school district.”
