MADISON – Native American life is the latest subject in which artists have excelled at Discovery Middle School.
Discovery student Jacqui Dub submitted artwork that was judged in first place in the art contest for National American Indian Heritage Month. Rosie’s International Services Inc. sponsors the contest.
In addition, Dub’s classmates were close behind in high ratings in the contest. Aaliyah Coe was selected as second-place winner. Veronika Feher designed art that earned third-place honors. Ayra Alam received an Honorable Mention in the contest.
Raquel Spiegel is art teacher for these students at Discovery. The contest coincided with Native American Indian Heritage Month.
Dub created a three-dimensional model of the site for a Native American family on the plains. A teepee composed of replicated animal skins stood tall with its sapling timbers for support. A day’s catch of fish was laid on a frame of crooked branches. A buffalo stood nearby covered in rugged black and brown fur.
“The portraits we received have further proven that children are putting forth efforts to explore innovative opportunities to express their place within our society,” U.S. Army Master Sergeant Edward L. Gaston said in correspondence to Discovery administrators and Spiegel. Gaston works with the U.S. Army Materiel Command on Redstone Arsenal.
“Through competitions, we have observed competitiveness to be a beneficial method to encourage uniqueness and talents,” Gaston said.
“To show our appreciation and acknowledge the endeavors of our youth and their dedication to expression, I would like to cordially invite you to National American Indian Heritage Month Program,” he said.
Gaston said that Ethnic Observance Programs on Redstone Arsenal “strive to promote diversity and inclusion within the community. One way we achieve this goal” is the American Indian heritage contest.
