ECHO ANNOUNCES WINNERS OF ECHO EARTH WEEKS ART CONTEST
813 Entries On Display During ECHO Earth Weeks MudFest — April 22-30


(BURLINGTON, VT)--ECHO Earth Weeks, sponsored by Hannaford Supermarkets, is a two-week celebration of Earth Day, featuring the ECHO Earth Weeks Art Contest, the current student fair, and the upcoming Mudfest. For the Art Contest, ECHO reached out to K-12 students in Vermont and upstate New York to submit their artistic interpretation of a “Healthy Food Chain.” 813 entries were submitted to ECHO, which were then judged by an Art Panel of artists and environmentalists. The Grand Prize artist and the First Prize winners from three grade levels received various prizes, including a laptop computer for the Grand Prize Winner’s classroom. And now, each and every entry, including the winning artworks, will be on display during ECHO Earth Weeks MudFest, April 22-30.

The winners of the 2006 ECHO Earth Weeks Art Contest are:

Grand Prize Winner:

 
  • Xavier Donnelly; 8th grade; Edmunds Middle School, Burlington, VT


  • First Prize Winners:

     
  • Grades K-4: Dugan O'Donnell; 4th grade; Malletts Bay School; Colchester, VT


  •  
  • Grades 5-8: Sheperd Lanz; 6th grade; Edmunds Middle School; Burlington, VT


  •  
  • Grades 9-12: Leela Christian-Tabek; 9th grade; Essex High School; Essex Junction, VT


  • In response to the Art Contest, Phelan Fretz, ECHO’s Executive Director, said, “In our inaugural year of the ECHO Earth Weeks Art Contest, we chose the theme of a “Healthy Food Chain” to encourage young people to be more aware of their personal food chain — that is directly linked to the food chain of the entire region — by eating more fresh, local and wholesome food. Their response to the Art Contest has been overwhelming, and we are delighted to share this treasure-trove of creativity with the community during ECHO Earth Weeks Mudfest.”

    ECHO Earth Weeks MudFest will be nine days of mud-themed activities, games, ecology booths, Voices for the Lake family workshops, and “Muddy Music” at noon, showcasing Patti Casey (4/22), Pete Sutherland (4/23), Sandra Wright (4/24), Jon Gailmor (4/25), Sheefra (4/26), Mountain Girl Band featuring Tammy Fletcher, Dakota Foley & Jim Pitman (4/27), PossumHaw (4/28), Colin McCaffrey (4/29), and Lewis Franco (4/30).
