Student places in national art contest

A Dunwoody Elementary School student won second place in a national environmental art contest.

Carol Zhou's work will be displayed at several federal buildings in Washington, D.C., including the Smithsonian Institution.

Officials with the Coastal America Ocean Art Contest said in a letter to the girl that her essay and artwork, selected from entries by 1,500 students, was a "masterpiece" and a "wonderful example of how art can be an effective learning and communication tool and inspire ocean stewardship."
