Art Contest Winners at Newman Elementary
Three Newman Elementary students won grand prizes in the recent Cesar Chavez Literacy and Arts Social Justice Contest. Jaylynn Pendleton (second grade), Aelianna Jacobson (third grade) and Jaidyn Valdez (fourth grade) were our Grand Prize winners representing the Salt Lake City School District. They were honored at a special banquet held at Little America Hotel.
Newman Elementary had 12 overall winners in grades two, three and four in the contest. The other nine winners received 1st places, 2nd places, 3rd places and honorable mention for their grade level.
Newman is proud of the efforts of all the students who entered this contest, and their visions of social justice. Mr. Paul Heath, Newman’s art teacher, took art time in class for the second and third grade students to create their artwork. The fourth graders were given time in Mrs. Barbara Stevens’ class to create their art work, and five pieces of art were chosen for submission by Mrs. Angelique Morrill, a fifth grade teacher and advocate for social justice.
Congratulations to the students and all of their teachers for their advocacy of social justice!
