Monett High School sophomore Chloe Bartz received the Missouri Art Education Association President’s Choice Award for secondary schools for her colored pencil drawing of her dad’s hunting dog, “Dixie Sugar Foot,” pictured with her teacher, Lynn Morin, left. Monett’s five art teachers, Morin, Tegan Reed, Amy Green, Amy Barker and Elizabeth Wallsmith attended the awards ceremony in Jefferson City. Each teacher was allowed to send four works of art. “We are thankful our district supports the visual arts by allowing us to take our students on a field trip to see their art and other student artists represented throughout the state,” Morin said. For the honor, Bartz received $100 in art supplies from Sargent’s Art Supplies, and Morin received $300 in supplies to share with art students. Contributed photo
