In the second annual art and essay contest, four Dutch Fork students garnered top awards. The theme for this year's contest was One Billion Hungry in the World. What is your Role? Of the 139 art entries, freshman Bradie McKay won 3rd place and an iPod touch. Of the 431 essays submitted, freshman Mendy Harris won Honorable Mention and a $25 prize; sophomore Glenn Bertram won 3rd place and an iPod touch; and sophomore Christopher Pittman won 1st place and a trip to Turkey. Mendy and Bradie are students of social studies teacher Regina Dilley and Glenn and Chris are students of English teacher Allison Norwood.
In addition to Chris's trip to Turkey, Allison Norwood and District Superintendent Stephen Hefner also won a trip to Turkey.
At this point, all 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place state winners will compete in the Southeastern contest. Winners will be announced in a couple of weeks.
