Halverson Elementary School recently named third-grader Brenda Lunning and sixth-grader Angel Martinez as Hallway Legends for their artwork.

The school started the art contest in 2009 to encourage creativity and innovation, as well as emphasize the importance of the arts. Under the direction of art teacher Cammie Tennis, all Halverson students have an opportunity to create pieces during art class for the contest. Art professionals from outside the school select winners from two categories, grades K-3 and grades 4-6. Each winner receives a plaque, with their artwork reproduced on it, to take home. Their artwork is 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 Frames R Us and Trophy Showcase also contributed.
