Congratulations to Austin Area School District junior, Sophia Hewitt, daughter of Christopher Hewitt, for her flag design entry for the Pennsylvania Art Education Association's annual Youth Art Month contest.  Pennsylvania's theme for the flag design contest this year is "United Through Art."  This contest is a nationwide event which is planned in conjunction with Youth Art Month.  Each state will select a design which will be made into a 3' X 5' flag and flown at the National Art Education Association Convention.  Winning designs will be honored at the Youth Art Month Reception in Harrisburg in March and winners will receive prizes. Contest is open to students in grades K-12.  Good luck to Sophia as her design competes at the next level. Sophia is pictured with Austin Art teacher, Mrs. Rodich.
