The 2009-10 Halverson Hallway Legends are second-grader Jacquelyn Guerrero and sixth-grader Carmelita Olvera. The winners of this annual art contest were announced during the school’s talent show in June.

The school started the art contest last year to encourage creativity and innovation, as well as to emphasize the importance of the arts. Under the direction of art teacher Cammie Tennis, all Halverson students had an opportunity to create pieces during art class for the contest. Art professionals from outside the school selected winners from two categories, grades K-3 and grades 4-6. Each winner received a plaque, with their artwork reproduced on it, to take home. Their artwork was professionally framed and will hang in the main Halverson hallway until they graduate from high school, when the winners take ownership of their pieces.

SPIRIT, the parent-teacher organization at Halverson, provided funding for the framing and plaques, and thanks Frames R Us and Trophy Showcase for their contributions.
