Original art by Benji M., age 5

Congratulations to Elizabeth Meyer Preschool student Benjamin M. for his winning entry in the Chicago Sun-Times' recent student art contest!

Ten winners each in the categories of elementary, middle, and high school were selected from more than 120 entries. Benji's painting is featured at the top of the Sun-Times' news announcement released Friday morning.

Entries illustrate the student artists' expression of the theme, "spring ahead" and were critiqued by four professional artists. Benji's work was noted for its "dynamic use of color and energy."
