Art Contest Winners Recognized

The winners of the 2023-24 Sun West Student Art Contest were recognized in May by presentations made at their schools and celebrated with pizza parties.

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. In May, the seven winning students received gift certificates and celebrated with their classmates with a pizza party, courtesy of Sun West. Their artwork will also be displayed in the Sun West Division Office for a year. Director of Education Vicki Moore and the Board of Education Trustee for their school visited their schools to present them with their prizes.
