"That's a big deal," Interim Superintendent Howard Colter said at the April 10, 2017 School Board meeting. "About two dozen student artwork throughout entire state were picked, and ... I think she was the only student who was in elementary school," Colter said of the work submitted by Zabina Zimmerman.
Her submission, "Dream," was one of more than 200 submitted for consideration in the fall. According to the state website, the images are scored and selected by an independent panel of three judges.
The "Screensaver Challenge" has been an annual traditon over the last eight years and has attracted more than 2,000 pieces of student artwork. Selected images are made available for download on MLTI devices as either screensaver or backgrounds.
This year's selected images will be displayed on the "big screen" at the MLTI student conference in May, and will be printed and displayed at the Department of Education's Augusta offices from June 1-Aug. 31.
