UNION COUNTY — Thirteen talented young artists were honored by Sixteenth Circuit Solicitor’s Office for using their talent to create anti-drug and anti-bullying posters.

For the past two years Sixteenth Circuit Solicitor Kevin Brackett has sponsored the Union County Solicitor’s Office Anti-Drug/Violent Poster Contest. Fifth grade students in the county’s elementary schools take part in the contest, drawing posters with anti-drug and anti-bullying messages. The winning posters are printed on calendars distributed for free throughout the county in August.

This year’s winners were honored by the Solicitor’s Office with a ceremony at Kirby’s Cake Shoppe on May 17. Brackett praised the students for their artistic ability and for the messages they expressed through their art.

“This is a wonderful event that celebrates not only the art of these children but also gives them an opportunity to make their own positive statement about drugs and bullying,” Brackett said. “I think it’s important for kids to start thinking about these issues at a young age and hopefully that will encourage positive decision-making when they grow older.”

Each wining student received a copy of their work, a certificate, and a $50 Walmart gift card.

The winners and the schools they attend are:

• Karen Gibson — Foster Park Elementary School

• Jasmine Humphries — Buffalo Elementary School

• Kaitlyn Cornelison — Buffalo Elementary School

• Madison Knox — Foster Park Elementary School

• Annie Wang — Foster Park Elementary School

• JaBryan Carter — Foster Park Elementary School

• Cortney Hicks — Foster Park Elementary School

• Payton Riley Burnett — Foster Park Elementary

• Shonta Wicks — Monarch Elementary School

• Gabriel Parker — Monarch Elementary School

• Kirsten Foster — Jonesville Elementary School
