Local school board members Chairman Ronnie Terry and Region 6 Chairman Annie Hylton were treated to an impressive display of creativity and faced some tough decisions in selecting the 2016 winners of the Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) Region 6 Regional Art Contest on April 13.
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. 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.
