Two of this year’s holiday greeting card contest winners go to Boca schools.
This is the third year the School District of Palm Beach County had a contest to create holiday art with a Florida winter theme.
Sophia Milcheva, a fifth-grader at Verde Elementary, won in her category. Her card shows an underwater scene with fish and a turtle wearing a hat and wooly scarf.
A snowman in sunglasses under a palm tree captured the middle school prize for Samantha Bourne. She’s an eighth-grader at Omni Middle School.
Verde art teacher Jodi Metviner and her counterpart at OmniMaryalis Hernandez were also cited.
The high school winner at John I. Leonard High in Greenacres was 12th grader Noha Huda.
The contest is named for the superintendent, in this case, Dr. Donald Fennoy.
