Newnan students participate in VFW art contest

The Newnan Times-Herald

VFW Post 2667 Auxiliary recently presented awards to students from Newnan High School who participated in the Young American Creative Patriotic Art Contest.

This contest was open to all high school students. Entries were judged on the originality of concept, presentation and patriotism expressed, content of how it relates to patriotism and clarity of ideas, design technique and total impact of work.

These art entries were retrieved from Newnan High School after the tornado. Teacher Heather Corley said she and the students were so thankful as the students had put so much work into these art entries.

First Place Winner Caleb Nase’s entry has been sent to the State Level judging.

Emma Willingham won second place, and Jaime Rechy took third place.

First place, second place and third place post winners received a certificate and a monetary award.

All 16 participants received a certificate of participation. The first place winner's entry has now advanced to the state for further judging. 20210505-Caleb-Nase.jpg?mtime=20210504154857#asset:61179Artwork by Jaime Rechy 20210505-Jaime-Rechy.jpg?mtime=20210504154858#asset:61180Artwork by Caleb Nase20210505-Emma-Willingham.jpg?mtime=20210504154900#asset:61181Artwork by Emma Willingham20210505-VFW-1.jpg?mtime=20210504154901#asset:61182From left are, front, Kristen Jenkins, Riley Craven, Emily Bowers, Caleb Nase, Madison Davis and Heather Corley.
