The students of Morgan Elementary School recently competed in the annual Inspirations contest. Pupils from kindergarten through fifth grade were eligible to participate in the art competition.
The theme, “Dream, Believe, Inspire” allowed students to explore what they believe and use creative artistic ways to express their feelings.
This year brought a large number of entries and the elementary PTSO noted they were of exceptional quality. “Everything was on a broader spectrum,” PTSO President Courtney Gualco said.
The contest had several changes including moving the competition time from Christmas break to spring break. Also in the past the school held an assembly to recognize the winners of the artistic contest. This year it was decided to give certificates to the winners at school. However, instead of an assembly, the students’ artwork became part of the big art show that evening. This allowed greater opportunity for friends and family to view the winning artwork.
