The <br /> theme for this year's student art contest is "Stop Gun Violence in Our Neighborhoods". <br /> Students from Washington High School were asked to design a billboard <br /> centered around the theme. Ultimately, sixty-three entries from all grade levels were <br /> submitted for the contest. Many of the students who participated in the contest live in the <br /> Weed & Seed area. Ms. Ann Hamilton, Art teacher at Washington, who encouraged her <br /> students to participate stated, "the exercise was good for students because it challenged <br /> them to think about how art affects us and the decisions we make in our lives on a daily <br /> basis, and that art is not always used to decorate,but to sometimes communicate". <br /> -more- <br />
