Students from Johnston County Schools and McDowell County Schools received top honors in the North Carolina Summer Nutrition Programs Artwork contest. The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) School Nutrition Services staff invited students to design artwork to help increase the visibility of its Summer Nutrition Programs.
“What better way to capture a student’s attention than student artwork,” NCDPI School Nutrition Services Section Chief Lynn Harvey said. “The state’s Summer Nutrition Programs provide a critical service to students who may go hungry when school is out. It’s important we reach these students, and we feel confident the artwork will help grab their attention,” she said.
