DeKalb County Court to announce Division V Art Challenge Contest winners

DECATUR, Ga. -- The winners of the second annual Division V Art Challenge Contest will be announced by DeKalb County State Court Judge Eleanor L. Ross on Monday, December 4.

At 4:00 p.m. at the DeKalb County Courthouse Courtroom C, middle and high school students will learn how their work ranked. Around 36 pieces including pencil drawings, watercolor and photographs were submitted from around 15 schools.

Judge Ross will select winners based on creativity, through the promotion of children and the community. When the contest ran, Ross contacted Elizabeth Epps, the Visual and Performing Arts Coordinator for the K-12 DeKalb County School System. Epps spread word of the contest to all schools in DeKalb County.

“While art programs are reduced or eliminated in the schools, this contest will allow creative and artistic students to express themselves. There are so many talented young people in our community that this contest gives them platforms to shine,” Ross said. “The artwork hangs in my chambers and in my juror room. You would not believe the comments that I have received from jurors, court staff, and the general public who come into chambers and view the art. They are amazed at the talent.”

For more information, contact Michelle Beck at (404) 371-2300.
