Kylie Nash, daughter of Scott and Nikki Nash, was selected as the winner for the Lion’s Club Peace Poster Contest. The contest is open to seventh and eighth grade art students.  Art teacher, Sandy Carter, works with the students on the project that takes around 3 to 4 weeks to complete. Students are shown posters from previous years to get an idea of what the project entails. They research the project and come up with ideas for their poster. One might think it is an easy competition but there are several different phases of the contest that require work, time and effort to achieve the best results. Though the project is a contest, students are given two grades in class for their participation. Grades for design and technical skills are taken and then the posters are given to the Lion’s Club to choose their winner. Students who are intimidated when the project begins are more confident in what they can achieve and have a better understanding of various aspects of art.
