Posted

Harris Richardson, of Scottsdale,  was awarded third place in the Second Annual National Student Art Competition conducted by the National Museum of the Marine Corps.

The fourth grader at Annunciation Catholic School in Cave Creek, won in the K – 6th grade category with a graphite drawing entitled, “Welcome Home Soldier,” according to a press release.

Student artists were invited to create 2D artwork that illustrated what “Welcome Home” means to Marines, the release said.

Artwork was judged in three grade-based categories: K-6, 7-9, and 10-12. The Marine Corps Heritage Foundation awarded a certificate and cash prizes to the winners.

The local youth’s art will be displayed through January in the gallery at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, Virginia, the release noted.
