Catherine Chung, a student at Dunbar School of Creative and Performing Arts, earned first-place honors in the middle school division of the Monroe Sausage Art Contest, earning a spot in the game program for the 2016 Dollar General Bowl.
The contest, which carried a theme of “Wildlife and Waterways of the Bay Area” drew more than 200 entries, which were judged by representatives of the Mobile Museum of Art and the Eastern Shore Art Center. All winners were featured in the Dollar General game program, and were honored at an awards banquet last week, where their schools also received cash prizes.
Chung’s winning entry is pictured above.
Other MCPSS students who placed in the top three were:
Grades 6-8: Alexis Dira, Causey Middle (2nd), Kassidy Clayton, Causey Middle (3rd).
Grades 9-10: Jeremy Bankston, Theodore (2nd).
Grades 11-12: Valerie Partsch, Theodore (2nd).
