Students from Swainsboro High School’s Visual Art Department attended the Georgia National Fair, October 8-17, 2004 whose theme this year was, “ Discover Georgia at the Fair!” According to the Georgia National Newsletter and the CFE, executive director Michael A. Froelich, “the Georgia National Fair offers unique opportunities for everyone, for the general public, the Fair is the place for education and entertainment. For competitors, the Fair is the place to display a quilt and artwork.” Swainsboro High School’s art students’ participation in this popular event gives acknowledgement and encouragement to the young people who worked so hard to present their works.
Those students honored from Swainsboro High School were:
Trey Cox- 1st place- Computer Altered Imagery
