Superintendent’s office names art show winners

Organizers of the annual Young At Art student art show sponsored by the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools Office recently picked 22 students and their art for special recognition and prizes.

The winners’ projects are exhibited at Rood Administrative Center in Nevada City, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays through April.

Winners are:

Kindergarten: Sarah Hunter, Union Hill School and Foster Wilson-Hufford, Gold Run School.

First grade: Sydney Zink, Gold Run School and Cody Bostrom, Nevada City Elementary School.

Second grade: Tara Larson, Nevada City Elementary School and Lisa Brenner, Gold Run School.

Third grade: Cody Long, Deer Creek School and Ellary Watt, Nevada City Home Study Charter School.

Fourth grade: Brooke McCoy, Grizzly Hill School and Chelsea Turner, Ready Springs School.

Fifth grade: Lisa Depavloff, Grizzly Hill School and Brittney Whitney, Ready Springs School.

Sixth grade: Jay Rose, Lyman Gilmore Middle School and Cody Palmer, Grass Valley Charter School.

Seventh grade: Kaylynn Nunnes, Union Hill School and Lauren Schrack, Nevada City Home Study Charter School.

Ninth grade: Sara Carpenter and Casey Robertshaw, both of Bitney Springs Charter High School.

12th grade: Kaitlyn Harrah and Jessica Carney, both of Bear River High School.

No 10th and 11th grade honorees were selected because no art was submitted by the deadline.

A panel of professional artists selected the winners March 5 from hundreds of entries.

Award winners received certificates of achievement from county Superintendent Terry McAteer and $10 to $20 gift certificates from Ben Franklin in Grass Valley.
