Every year Mt. Vernon students have the opportunity to enter a special art contest sponsored by the Music K-8 Magazine. For many years MVES has been blessed with Honorable Mentions, and even a few Runners-Up. However, THIS year we have a super-special winner. For the first time in the history of the contest, one of our Mt. Vernon Alums has WON!
Shannen Eckert, a 7th grade student, entered the contest and has received the grand prize, $250 and her artwork on the cover of the May/June issue of Music K-8. We are so very proud of Shannen and her efforts! Thank you for participating and doing your best. Hard work DOES pay off!
