Lee County students, teachers recognized in Kids Tag Art Program
The Foundation for Lee County Public Schools and Lee County Tax Collector’s office honored the two finalists from each of the county’s 46 elementary schools on Feb. 27 during a ceremony for the Kids Tag Art Program.
The two students from The Sanibel School were Molly Dunn and Anna Anderson-Kilgore.
Each school submitted artwork for decorative front-end license plates, of which two finalists from each school were chosen by a panel of art jurors from the community. The finalist plates were displayed around the room at the ceremony as foundation President Marshall Bower and Lee County Tax Collector Larry Hart distributed the awards of distinction and shared a few words about the program.
In addition, the art teachers each received $800 in grant money to utilize in their classrooms.
The Lee County Kids Tag Art program’s mission is to help enhance art education with supplies and resources for the classroom. Additional in-kind sponsorships offset costs and provide additional recognition and rewards for the students.
The public can support art in education by purchasing a Kids Tag Art plate at “http://www.leetc.com”>www.leetc.com.
Kids Tag Art proceeds will benefit participating art classrooms throughout The School District of Lee County through a grant program administered by The Foundation for Lee County Public Schools.
