All students at Escambia County Middle School were given the opportunity to participate in the State Superintendent’s Visual Arts Exhibit and Bicentennial Celebration. The key element of the art entry is that the artwork must be related to the state of Alabama by person, place, or experience.

ECMS had a schoolwide competition on November 2. The winners are Na’Layla Kidd, fourth grade; Hunter Moye, fourth grade; Marshawn Johnson, fifth grade; and Ariyana Young, fifth grade.

The winners of this competition will have their art work displayed in the statewide art exhibit.

The annual State Superintendent’s Visual Arts Exhibit will be held February 2-23. The exhibit of student work will be on display in the Old Supreme Court

Library of the Alabama State Capitol. The artwork will be judged and the winner will be notified by January 29.
