Central art students excel at Plains event

Two of Thomas County Central High School’s students won awards in the recent “Digging Peanuts in Plains” 2012 postcard art contest.

Tierra Christian earned first place and Peyton Barrett won third place in the 10th-grade division. Christian’s entry featured a large peanut in a jar with a flag-decorated hat digging into the farmlands of Plains. Barrett’s showed a large cartoon peanut pointing to a colorful billboard sign. Both students used colored pencil and sharpie markers as their media.

Winners and their teachers were invited to walk in the Peanut Festival Parade through downtown Plains and meet with former President Jimmy Carter, who presented them with an autographed book or medal, a certificate and enlarged copy of their postcard entry.

Thomas County Central High School art teacher Jocelyn Rivard said, “I couldn’t be more proud of all our entries this year. Our students have consistently won an award or two each year we’ve participated and it’s always exciting to see what the judges deem as the state’s best.” 

More than 8,000 students in grades kindergarten through twelfth competed this year. All the winning students’ postcard art is on display at the Plains High School Museum until May 2013 and online at www.jimmycarter.info under “In the Spotlight.”   The annual contest is sponsored by the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site (NHS) Education Program and The Peanut Institute.
