Everyone knows the friendly Farmers Insurance jingle "We are Farmers, bum ba dum bum bum bum bum." But now everyone will associate that jingle with art, thanks to Mr. Champer, our local Farmers Insurance Agent who has started a monthly art contest to benefit both students and teachers.
Each month, Mr. Champer visits a school and surveys the art put out by budding artists in the District. He selects three pieces and brings them to his office where coworkers, customers and members of the community can view and vote on their favorites. Then he invites the teacher and winning student to his office for a presentation for parents, friends and family. The teacher recieves a $100 gift certificate to Blick Art Materials.
For the first month of the contest, April, Mr. Champer went to eSTEM Academy at Reynoldsburg High School's Summit Campus and awarded Mr. Dornbrier a $100 gift card, and sophomore Treston with the blue ribbon. Senior Ramesh and Sophomore Grant were 2nd and 3rd respectively.
For May, Mr. Champer selected three pieces from Ms. Gedert's art class at HS(2) Academy. We will announce the winners in June!
