Tacoma student Young-eon Kim won the top prize in the 2013 Washington Apple Education Foundation (WAEF) Year of the Apple Art Contest. A student attending Tacoma’s Charles Wright Academy, she was awarded the grand prize in a surprise ceremony in the middle of art class with teacher Brian Hutcheson on Sept. 12.

“Apples under the Balcony at Sunset” by Young-eon Kim

The contest encourages art students in kindergarten through 12th grade to seek inspiration from Washington’s biggest crop. Young-Eon’s winning submission, “Apples under the Balcony at Sunset,” garnered a $750 cash prize and inclusion in the 2014 Dow AgroSciences wall calendar.

Seven students from three grade divisions (kindergarten through fourth grade, fifth grade through eighth grade, and ninth grade through 12th grade) received shares of the $1,650 in prize money for their award-winning works. One hundred dollars will also be awarded to each winning student’s school to purchase classroom art supplies. (end)
