With some persuasion, we got some personal artwork from her sketchbook in order to enter a few of her drawings into the Scholastic Arts competition. She won an award for each of her 3 entries winning 2 Gold Key awards and 1 Silver Key award. Sarah is also giving up some of her lunch periods to help the Olympics of the Visual Arts Drawing team for their competition in April.
