Last week, our four special guest judges got together to review the nearly 1,300 entries we received for this year’s College Savings Mississippi Art Contest. It was a tough job as Mississippi students presented some excellent artwork!
We will announce our winners in the coming week and we will celebrate their future dreams at a reception at the Old Capitol on April 4. First, second, and third place winners in each of our four age divisions (PreK-2
, and 9
) will take home MACS scholarships to help them finance the education that will help them achieve their dreams. And, the teacher who’s class provided the most entries will get a scholarship to distribute as they see fit.
Many thanks to our judges for taking the time to look over all these fantastic entries:
Limeul Eubanks, a visual artist and educator in Arts and World Languages at the Mississippi Department of Education, Office of Secondary Education
Herbert Mays, a portrait artist in Canton
Ricky Nobile, a cartoonist and caricature artist whose works you may have seen in many Mississippi newspapers
