Celebrating Art is a national art contest organized to recognize students with exceptional artwork. The artworks that are chosen, are published in a full-color hardbound book for the students to keep as a treasure. This is not a contest where every entry is invited to be published. Being published represents a lot of talent, hard work and dedication from teachers and students. We are honored that five Gulf Shores Middle School art students have been chosen to have their art published in "Celebrating Art." The five students chosen are: Luke Ball, Morgan Lollar, Delaney Russ, Sierra Naylor and Jacob Knight. As their art teacher I could not be more proud, they are all impressive artists. I am so thankful for contests like Celebrating Art that allows the students to be recognized for their talent. Thanks, Megan Scofield
