“I VOTED” Sticker Contest

Please use the above link to vote for your favorite potential sticker. Students from schools in Madison County were encouraged to enter this sticker contest. There were over eighty entries and I want to say that at least half of them came from my students because I gave it as an assignment in eight of my classes.

The assignment was to create a patriotic image with “I VOTED” as text. The winner’s artwork will be made into a sticker and handed out to Madison County voters in the upcoming November elections.

They’ve narrowed it down to seven finalists and those will be judged by the public via the above survey monkey link.

Two of the finalists are my students and they are two of the best fourteen-year-olds I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. One created the eagle design and the other the one with the two flags that looks like confetti or fireworks.

Please vote. Notice I didn’t say vote for one of mine – you have free will, after all. I don’t think the students receive any monetary prize – only the pride of recognition, I guess. And maybe a roll of stickers? I don’t know. Maybe one of them will grow up to be the POTUS.

Voting ends on July 21, 2023. The winner will be announced on August 1, 2023.

Gala for the Arts

On Wednesday, June 21, 2023, I attended Gala for the Arts at the Everson. I blondified for the occasion. Thank you, Amanda LoSecco!

The event was organized by CITI Arts in Education and was intended as a celebration of art education honoring students, teachers, administrators and friends of the arts.

We dressed in formal attire as we viewed student artwork, listened to student musical medleys and noshed on light hors d’oeuvres from The Red Sun Fire Roasting Company.

LeMoyne College has started a Visual & Performing Arts program. They were both sponsors and honorees.

I believe this was a first-timey event. Not sure if it will become an annual thingy. Would be nice!

So fun! <3
