All Students in WSD3
Goal: Create a picture that can be used to represent the following concept:
Be D3 Lit Fit
We want to combine the concept of reading and fitness. So you, the artist, need to create a piece of artwork that brings those two concepts together. The phrase Be D3 Lit Fit can be part of the artwork, but it does not need to be. You can use any art medium you would like. The artwork must be an original piece of artwork. Do not make your artwork larger than a 9 x 12 sheet of paper.
Use of the Artwork
The winning artwork will be used by the district library programs for this coming school year to promote literacy in the district.
Information that must be included with each picture:
First and last name of artist:
Age of artist:
Name of school:
Prize: $75 dollar gift card
Our April Widefield of Dreams student is Tayler Jones. She is a senior at Mesa Ridge High School and will be graduating in the spring. Before going to college, Tayler is traveling to Fiji to volunteer as an education assistant with Lattitude Global Volunteering. She will be there seven months teaching children how to speak English and helping out in the communities. Tayler has been working very hard to fundraise for the trip by making homemade tamales and selling them at school and selling her own artwork online. Her artistic talents have landed her a second place ribbon in the Congressional Art Competition and acceptance to the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design once she returns from Fiji. Tayler’s dream is to travel around the world and do something that makes her happy.
Our March Widefield of Dream's student is Widefield High School senior Jun Liu.
Jun is an international student from China. He moved to the United States in 2011. Jun knew very little English but quickly learned with the help of ELL and Rosetta Stone. He is now at the top of his graduating class with a 4.02 GPA.
Jun is also a cross-country super star! He broke the school 5k record with a time of 16:27 and was also the only runner who qualified to compete at the state meet. Jun will be running on the track team this spring and is looking forward to breaking more school records. His dream after college is to become an environmental engineer and travel overseas to build wells and purify water.
