Bridges Area Learning Center student Emily Johnson received a Merit Award from Celebrating Art, a contest sponsored by Blick Art Materials.
Johnson has been creating digital art for more than a year, according to a news release from the district. Her teacher encouraged her to enter the contest.
The top 25 percent of contestants in each grade division will have their work published in an anthology. The top 10 will receive $25 and a copy of the anthology. The teachers of the top 10 will also win art supplies.
Top 10 and high merit award winners will be announced at the end of June.
