Student wins state art contest
Quinn Berkram, a fifth-grader in Amy Grigoletti’s class at Edgerton Elementary in Kalispell, is the 2019 statewide winner of the Montana Bringing Our Missing Children Home poster contest.
Poster artwork was judged on originality, creativity, use of color and materials, and reflection of the contest’s theme. Written poster applications were judged on the level of understanding of the subject, clarity and grammar.
Quinn’s poster reflects a scene of parents joyfully reuniting with their son under a sky bursting with fireworks. For her winning entry, Quinn received a $100 cash prize presented by the Montana Department of Justice’s Division of Criminal Investigation, along with a classroom pizza party. Quinn’s poster has been submitted to the national contest.
