Jasmin Click’s winning artwork CLERMONT — Apparently, artistic creativity is contagious at Windy Hill Middle School.

Five students —Jasmin Click, Savannah Conol, Nicole Cabada, Sierra Henderson and Tanner Kelly — from the Clermont-area school recently learned they had progressed in the next step of national art contests.

Earlier this month, Windy Hill Middle students earned honors at the Central Florida Awards Ceremony & Reception for the 2010-2011 Nile Foundation Annual Art & Essay Contest. Jasmin Click placed first in the contest and won a laptop. Savannah Conol took home second place and a $150 gift card while Nicole Cabada came in 10th place and received a ticket to an Orlando Magic game.

“These students will move on to the next round of the competition which is the Southeastern-wide Contest which takes place on March 25 at Morehouse College in Atlanta,” said Pamela Haberkorn, Art Teacher at Windy Hill Middle.

At stake at the Southeastern Contest, where Windy Hill Middle students’ art will compete with other student artwork from Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina and Tennessee, are trips to Turkey for first, second and third place.

In other artistic news from Windy Hill Middle, judges for the National Poison Prevention Week poster contest recently narrowed the list of more than 400 entries down to 59 posters. Making the cut are two students from Windy Hill Middle: Sierra Henderson and Tanner Kelly. The awards will be given out on March 24th in Jacksonville.
