Eva Grace Daves, left, fifth-grade student at Acme Delco Elementary School, was winner of the 2017 Columbus County Community Farmers Market poster contest.
More than 370 students in Kindergarten through fifth grade entered the contest this year which was focused on the importance of bees and other pollinators to local fruit and vegetable production as well as good nutrition, regular exercise, and healthy lifestyles.
At the awards presentation held at Celebrate the Arts, Grace received a certificate, a framed copy of the 2017 farmers market poster, a t-shirt, and $50 gift certificates to the farmers market. The contest is sponsored by Columbus Regional Healthcare System.
Also pictured, right, is Grace’s teacher, Mrs. Myra Creech, who received $50 farmers market gift certificates sponsored by the Columbus County Arts Council.
