Students, schools shine in annual art competition

Congratulations to five students who attend schools sponsored by Buckeye Community Hope Foundation - and one school - for their performance in the National Charter School Institute’s 2019 Midwest Charter Schools K-5 Art Contest. The theme of the third annual competition was “TOGETHER we can,” inspired by a quote from Helen Keller: Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.

Noble Academy - Columbus students performed well, with fourth-grade student Zahra Al Khazraji taking first place in the 3-5 Top Art category, and fifth and second-graders Israe Mesbah and Aaron Ashley receiving honorable mention recognition.

Two students from Horizon Science Academy Lorain - fourth graders Aiyana Todd and Evelyn Torres - were also among those earning honorable mention recognition for their entries.

The school-wide award went to Constellation Schools: Westside Community School of the Arts.

Nearly 2,000 charter school students from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin submitted artwork and shared their plans for the future in response to the questions: What is your dream? What would you want to see accomplished if you had a team of talented people to help you make it happen?

The Institute’s goal in sponsoring the art contest is to help inspire adults to keep working hard to help kids turn their dreams into reality.
