Trent Craft of Magee High 2014 wins State Art Contest

Trent Craft, Magee High School 2014 graduate, was the winner of the Youth Art Month Flag Design contest for the state of Mississippi’s High School Division. Trent was awarded a box of art supplies from the sponsoring company, Sergeant Art, as part of his award.

Youth Art Month (YAM) is an annual observance each March to emphasize the value of art and art education for all children and to encourage public support for quality school art programs. Established in 1961, YAM provides a forum for acknowledging skills that are not possible in other subjects. The Council for Art Education (CFAE), a sponsor of Youth Art Month, adopted the national theme, “Start With Art, Learn for Life.” Art Education develops self-esteem, appreciation of the work of others, self expression, cooperation with others, and critical thinking skills. All of these skills are vital to the success of our future leaders–our children. Each year, state Youth Art Month Chairpersons hold a student flag design program. A theme is selected that is representative of the individual state and the spirit of Youth Art Month .

Congratulations, Trent! Mrs. Kathy Gibson is the art teacher at Magee High School and was thrilled that Trent was recognized for his artistic talent.
