CRAIG COUNTY – Craig County Middle School student Harrison Early’s art work will be hanging in the Virginia Capitol building in Richmond.
Harrison’s colored pencil drawing of an owl sitting on a branch was chosen as the middle-school winner in Delegate Greg Habeeb’s House of Delegates’ District Back to School Art Contest. The theme for this year’s contest was Virginia wildlife.
Harrison and the winners of the elementary school and high school-age categories have been invited to visit the Capitol on Feb. 7 to see his art in the General Assembly Building. His winning piece will be displayed in front of Del. Habeeb’s office.
Harrison’s art teacher, Jessica Hamlin, who also teaches art at McCleary Elementary, is excited about her student’s win
The Craig County School Board plans to recognize Harrison at a future meeting.
Habeeb represents Craig County, Salem and parts of Roanoke County and Montgomery County in the House of Delegates.
