​Student Artwork Contest Winners Announced!

The art of seven talented students has been selected as the winning entries in the second annual Sun West Student Art Contest.

Over 300 students, from two thirds of Sun West’s schools entered the contest that started this fall. There were four categories in the contest: PreK – Grade 3; Grades 4-6; Grades 7-9; and Grades 10-12; and students were challenged to create art that depicted life in Sun West School Division.

Following the December 2 deadline, the student entries went through an initial review and top entries were selected in each category. The top entries were then judged by a group that included the Board of Education, Sun West Division Office Staff and some student leaders. These judges voted for the entries they felt were best and those with the most votes were awarded first place and runner up in each category. These seven students will each receive gift certificates and will be able to celebrate with their classmates with a pizza party courtesy of Sun West. Their artwork will be displayed in the Sun West Division Office for a year.

“We want to thank all the students who entered!” Said Vicki Moore, Sun West Director of Education, “Everyone did such a wonderful job. We really enjoyed all the art we received and will proudly display the artwork of the first place and runner up students at the Division Office. Their talent and creativity is inspiring!” She added.
