Groundbreaking Mississippian Art Contest Winners Announced
Two Winona Elementary School students are the inaugural winners of a statewide art contest sponsored by the Mississippi Department of Archives and History. Education staff from MDAH presented each winner with a ceramic tile print of the winning illustrations.
To celebrate the construction of the new Museum of Mississippi History and Mississippi Civil Rights Museum, children across the state were asked to illustrate and submit their choice of the most innovative, inspiring, heroic, or otherwise significant person in Mississippi history.
DouBrava and Guzman’s artwork will be on permanent display in Museum of Mississippi History and the Mississippi Civil Rights after the 2017 opening. The art will also be featured on posters shared with teachers throughout the state to promote next year’s contest.
For information on the 2014-2015 art contest, call 601-576-6997 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
