A group of four St. Joseph Elementary School third graders will soon receive recognition from the Conway Symphony Orchestra Guild for artwork they submitted in the guild’s recent art contest.

The contest was done in conjunction with an upcoming performance of the "Nutcracker Suite" by the orchestra and Festival Ballet Arkansas.

Contest participants were asked to draw or paint about "The Nutcracker" in any media.

Fourth grader Luke Harness won Best in Show, Chloe Cavin won first place, Anneke McGhee received second and Sophia Scholz was awarded third Place.

A panel of three local artists did the judging.

These students are scheduled to be recognized before a performance of the ballet on Dec. 10 at the University of Central Arkansas.

Harness and St. Joseph Elementary will each receive $100, Cavin will be given $50,= and McGhee and Scholz will get $25 and $15 for their artwork.
