Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
The Wooten Center held our Christmas art contest this year with the theme, "Gift of Love." The card has been our most challenging, but not because of production. While we want to stay in touch with our friends and need the funds typically raised, we know that so many are suffering at this time either financially, emotionally, or physically. Not the best time to ask for support!
Here's our "Gift of Love" art contest winners from top: Samantha (1st), Keyrey (2nd), and Benjamin (3rd). Great job, students. Thank you for your participation!
1st Place Samantha Campos, 6th grade "My drawing means coming closer to friends and family. Even though we are in a pandemic, it is still important to come together.”
2nd Place Keyry Hernandez, 12th grade "Everyone deserves love."
3rd Place Benjamin Wandrick, 7th grade "Gifts aren't always materialistic. Love is a gift too."
