LMS reveals agenda design winner
For the second year in a row, Lansing Middle School gave its aspiring artists the opportunity to have their work featured in a publication that all of their fellow students will be carrying.
The contest was open to all Lansing Middle School students. LMS art teacher Andrea Wecker said the idea for the contest and the publication of students' work in the planner was "to give students a chance to display their art and their school spirit."
The school requires each student to use a student daily planner, and the winning artwork goes on the agenda's back cover.
Sixth-grader Morgan Stockton, Lansing, won this year's contest with her drawing of a lion resting a paw on the letters "LMS," below the message, "Go Lions!" The agenda featuring Stockton's art will be available in the fall.
Stockton said it felt "pretty good" to win the contest and that it was exciting to know her art would be on a book required for every student.
Brooks Jenkins, assistant principal, and Wecker both took part in selecting the winning drawing.
The criteria for artwork submitted was that it be black and white, on paper measuring 8 1/2 by 11 inches, and related to school spirit or school sports.
Last year's winner was Lauren Jaqua, then in sixth grade, who drew a portrait of a lion's head.
Even though her name didn't appear with her drawing on the cover, Jaqua said "it was really cool" to win the contest.
