Fillmore Students Win National Prizes
Students from Fillmore Arts Center have recently had impressive results in 2 prominent arts competitions.
The “Creativity Connects the World” Crayola National Art Exhibition is a nationwide compeition that awards only 50 finalists from across the country. The winners’ work will be displayed at the U.S. State Department this month.
Out of the 50 national finalists, SIX are students at Fillmore Arts Center, representing Key, Marie Reed and Stoddert Elementary schools.
Many of you also know the wonderful story of Edwin Castillo, a Fillmore student who last won the People’s Choice Award for the Cherry Blossom Festival Youth Art Show by over 300 votes!
This year, Fillmore was very well represented at the Cherry Blossom Festival Youth Art Contest, with three winners out of six in their age categories.
Fillmore students keep excelling. Here’s hoping that DCPS takes notice of the extraordinary work being done by the students and teachers there.
Let DCPS and Mayor Bowser know you want to fund Fillmore permanently.
