Dear Washington Art Teachers,
I am happy to announce the 2016 winner of the Youth Art Month (YAM) Flag Design Contest. Joanna Marin, a 6th grader from North Middle School in Everett, WA, created a beautiful painterly flag design to represent the arts in Washington. Her design will be made into a banner that travels to the National Art Educator’s Conference in Chicago, Illinois in March of this year. Following the conference the flag will be hung at the state capital building in Olympia, WA. Congratulations to Joanna and her teacher Cynthia Gaub! Thank you to the teachers from all over Washington that sent their students’ artwork to this competition. All ages are encouraged to participate and be considered in the YAM flag competition.
