Despite the cancellation of many Historic Bristol Day activities this month due to the coronavirus pandemic, students in the borough's schools participated in the annual artwork contest, with this year's theme focusing on “Where do you and your family like to grab a bite to eat in Bristol?”
Four students at St. Mark School in Bristol received top honors in the contest for which 37 students submitted entries. The artwork has been displayed at the Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Library in the borough through Sunday.
The art contest winners are: first place - Antoni Kardacz, seventh grade; second place - Liam Mullen, eighth grade; third place - Madigan Hanna, sixth grade; and honorable mention - Sean Weir, seventh grade.
Ribbons were awarded to each winner by The Bristol Cultural and Historical Foundation and a Michaels gift card was presented to the top entries. The contest was judged by Bristol artists Janice Rhodes and Marty Shively.
Historic Bristol Day Chairs Mary Gesualdi and Nick Rizzo thanked all who participated for expressing their creativity and talent. The artwork is on display in the Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Library from Oct. 17 until the 24th.
