County First Bank proudly sponsored its 21st annual George B. Morris Art Show on November 8, 2011 at Mary B. Neale Elementary School in Waldorf. This event highlights the artistic talents of third and fourth graders in the Charles County Elementary Schools. Participating schools and winners receive monetary awards to further enhance the schools’ art departments. Additionally, budding young artists have an opportunity to showcase their creativity amongst their peers, parents, teachers, administrators and the community.
Over a dozen County First employees volunteered their time and talents in coordinating, organizing, judging, set up, hosting and greeting young artists, teachers, and their families. Twenty five public and private schools participated. This year’s theme was “Nature’s Paintbrush- The Beauty of The Bay”. Grand Prize and Show Prize winning schools were: Walter J. Mitchell, Dr. Gustavus Brown, Dr. Thomas Higdon, and Grace Christian Academy.
A few samples of the artwork submitted are shown below, congratulations to all participants!
