Sunset Ridge Intermediate student Madeline Bruguier was named the winner
RIDGEFIELD — Madeline Bruguier, a sixth grader from Sunset Ridge Intermediate School, is the first-place winner in the Superintendent’s Holiday Greeting Card Art Contest for the Ridgefield School District. Her artwork was selected by judges as the entry that best exemplifies “Winter Wishes,” this year’s contest theme.
Madeline’s winning design will decorate the cover of the district’s holiday greeting card this year, which will be mailed out to school districts, public entities and private businesses on Ridgefield School District’s holiday mailing list. As the first-place winner, Madeline receives a $50 cash award.
Three artwork entries were also selected for runner-up honors. These entries were submitted by Elina Caine, a seventh grader from View Ridge Middle School; Kelsey Heath, a first grader from Union Ridge Elementary; and Mae Jones, a kindergartner from South Ridge Elementary. Each runner-up receives a $25 cash award for their winning design.
All four students were recognized at the district’s regular school board meeting on Dec. 10.
The Superintendent’s Holiday Greeting Card Art Contest, now in its sixth year, got its start in 2014 by the Ridgefield School District in partnership with the Ridgefield Art Association to promote student creativity and encourage student appreciation of the arts.
