Chicago Sun-Times Chooses Southwest Student!
May 6th, 2022
Chicago Sun-Times challenged Chicagoland students to take part in a contest called 'Spring Ahead' which asked student artists to illustrate drawings that centered around the theme, winter to spring. For a panel, they hand-selected 4 professional artists to judge the results. Mrs. Gorman entered her students and (drumroll) we are pleased to announce that one of our own was selected as a winner! Congratulations to Violet S in 5th grade! Please click the link to see her winning artwork in the featured article.
