18 students also submitted their work into the Wildlife Forever Fish Contest and the results should be coming in by next week.
Students have again sent their work into the Congressional Art Contest, and their art could have the possibility of been displayed in the United States Capital Building.
Also, the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF), Campbell County Chapter, hosted their annual art show and auction. Bri McKamey won the auction and her turkey received the highest amount of money at the auction. Bri's turkey was absolutely stunning, which included exquisite detail and hard work! 12 portraits were submitted into the auction.
Mrs. Green is inspired by art and believes that it is, "her calling," to teach the art classes at CCHS. She pushes her students to create amazing art and believes that, "if you try hard, you can...you've got to work at it." Her art classes and her students continue to represent CCHS in an extraordinary manner.
Congratulations to all of the art students and good luck in future competitions!
