The winners of the North Thompson Arts Council’s (NTAC) Elementary Art Contest were presented with their prizes by NTAC secretary, Lana Laskovic, on May 11, at the Armour Mountain Art Gallery, in Barriere.  The contest invited elementary school aged children throughout the North Thompson Valley to submit their artwork.  Those entries submitted in Barriere were voted on during the Celebration of the Arts Festival on the April 27-28 weekend.  The winner for the K-grade 3 category was Bobby-Raye Farrow, of Barriere Elementary (center).  The winner for the grade 4-7 category was Charlotte Thorley, of Sun Peaks Elementary (right).  Their winning artwork (pictured below in the same order) will be on display at the Armour Mountain Art Gallery.
