In 2016, the MCEF sponsored an art/writing competition for 3rd - 5th grades in all three school systems in McMinn County. The winners pictured below with teacher, Kay Frank, were: First Place, Deyra Berrara from Roger's Creek Elementary School, Second Place, Katie Taylor from E.K. Baker Elementary School, and Third Place, Sydney Stansell from Englewood Elementary School. Also, pictured are examples of the art work and from the reception that was held for the students, families, and school personnel during the exhibit at the McMinn County Living Heritage Museum.
