RRHS Senior Wins Elm Street Contest
The Elm Street Cultural Arts Village hosted an outdoor chalk art competition at the Greenprints Alliance Streetfest.
River Ridge High School senior Annie Timbrook was awarded $200 for the Walk On Art Scholarship this past Saturday in an outdoor chalk art competition hosted by Elm Street Cultural Arts Village as part of Woodstock’s Streetfest events.
The scholarship, sponsored by Acru, was available for high school juniors and seniors. The winning entry was selected based on both originality and the quality of illusion, by a panel of judges comprised of Woodstock Mayor Donnie Henriques and his wife Jan, Executive Director Mary Akers of the Cherokee Arts Center, and Jerrett McKenzie, Wealth Strategist for Acru.
"There was some real talent displayed on the sidewalks – but the smile on Annie’s face is how I will remember this event," McKenzie said.
Timbrook plans to attend the Savannah College of Arts and Design after graduation.
