Campbellsville Elementary School students recently won awards for their entries in Taylor County Conservation District's annual art contest.
Campbellsville Independent Schools' students have participated in the Jim Claypool Art and Conservation Writing contests for many years.
This year, for the first time, all CES students participated in the art contest.
Sponsors are the Kentucky Division of Conservation, Kentucky Farm Bureau and local conservation districts. The contest is open to all students in Taylor County.
The writing contest is open to students in sixth grade through high school seniors. The art contest includes students in first through fifth grades.
Classroom winners are chosen, as are school, county and state winners.
CES art competition winners include kindergarteners Hannah Matias, Zoe Weddle, Aubrey Allen and Aleeya Spaulding; first-graders Austin Hamilton, Alexis Mann, Aaron Floyd, Dax Gray and Jayden Cox; second-graders Cadence Burton, Ajada Smith, Joseph Greer and Evan Cundiff; and third-graders Aliyah Burton, Paige Ritchie, Madison Philpott and Gracie Pendleton, who are all classroom winners and receive $10.
Philpott was the first-place winner at CES, and receives $30 for that honor. She was also the county runner-up, and receives an additional $30.
Burton was the CES second-place winner, and wins an additional $20. And Pendleton was third-place, taking home $10 for that honor.
Doretha Sanders, who is Philpott's teacher, receives $50 for classroom supplies.
There were more than 400 art entries at CES.
Taylor County Conservation District Board Member Barry Smith and Linda Russell, district administrative secretary, presented the awards on Friday, March 17.
Campbellsville middle and high school award winners will be announced soon.
