All three Lynchburg City Schools student artists placed in the top 3 at the 2015 VSBA Southern Regional Student Art Contest in April.
Student art from the elementary, middle, and high school levels represented each school division in the competition, which was judged at the regional forum for area school board members.
Linkhorne Elementary school’s Angel Collins placed first in the elementary division, and Linkhorne Middle School’s Iyanna Ware and E. C. Glass’s Kate Ruehle placed second in the middle and high school divisions, respectively.
The VSBA Regional Art Contest was started in 1989 to promote the artistic talents of Virginia’s public school students. For each of the nine VSBA regions, a winner is chosen for the elementary, middle, and high school levels. The winning art is framed and displayed in the offices of the VSBA in Charlottesville and the Richmond offices of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction.
