The objective of the essay and the art piece was to make something that would fit with the theme and was very well put together.

“I entered the contest because I had already made the art piece, and it fit well with the contest,” Mullins said.

She said the was excited her artwork was selected.

“I thought it was pretty cool that they picked mine as the winner, and I was also surprised,” she said.

In addition, the other winner was also surprised.

“I entered the contest because I felt I had a good shot at winning,” Sanders said. “I was kinda surprised because I wrote it in 10 minutes.”

Journalism teacher Derrick Miller was the judge for the essay and artwork. He chose based on how well they fit the theme of Anti-Bullying Week. This was all done in the midst of Anti-Bullying Week, which is the week where people stand against bullying.
