Back Creek Christian Academy Wins 2009 “Young Masters” Art Contest

Two young artists from Back Creek Christian Academy have won the premier art contest hosted by Young Masters, a national franchise that showcases children’s artwork on lasting keepsakes.

Kindergartner, Emily Goodman, and Fourth Grader, Matthew Barsody from Back Creek Christian Academy were named the art contest winners by a team of Young Masters judges for their skill and creativity applied to their artwork – more than 35,000 pieces of artwork were submitted this Fall to the Young Masters headquarters in Atlanta.

Back Creek Christian Academy will receive $500 for its art department and a pizza party and both Goodman and Barsody will take home a host of products showcasing their winning art work, including a tote bag, puzzle, postcards, t-shirt, bag tag, key chain, notepad holder and a 4-foot WallPix.

“Art education is a critical part of a young student’s learning experience and it’s truly rewarding to help support the art program at Back Creek Christian Academy,” said Crystal Horne, local Young Masters franchise owner serving Cabarrus and Mecklenburg Counties. “These young artists are extremely talented and very deserving of this award.”
