[ARCHIVED] Winners of Homestead Centennial History Student Contest Honored by City Council

Winners of the Homestead Centennial student contest were recognized at the October Homestead City Council meeting. Hundreds of students from elementary, middle and high schools in and around Homestead submitted entries for the essay, photography and art poster contest that celebrated Homestead’s 100th birthday.

“We wanted to involve our youth in the celebration of our history and our Homestead pride,” said Councilwoman Patricia Fairclough-McCormick, the City Council liaison of the Centennial Steering Committee who helped organized the contest and the Centennial Children’s Day Event. “These students worked extremely hard and turned in beautiful work. We are honored to award them for their efforts.”

Judges had the difficult task of selecting winners from over one hundred extraordinary entries for the student photography, art and essay Homestead History Contests. Centennial Steering Committee members Maycol Enriquez and Kevin Myles headed up the judges for the Student Contest. In the photography category first place was awarded to Seam Grey of MAST Academy, second place to Lorelei Hernandez of Keys Gate Charter High School, and third place to Liam Leider of Atala Montessori. In the writing category first place was given to Katie Bowerman, second place to Cheyenne Martinez of Summerset Academy, and there was tie in the third place for Irma Valladares of Campbell Drive Middle and Joshua Gutierrez of Campbell Drive Elementary K-8. In the art category the winner was Joslyn Brand of South Dade Senior High, second place were Omar Colon & Auntron Cooper also of South Dade Senior High, and Nicholas Jimenez of Keys Gate Charter High School, third place was given to Chanatan Maungoijarern.

All winners received cash prizes at the September 22nd Centennial Children’s Day Event, where winners were announced and a large exhibit of all the entries was on display. The Homestead Centennial Contest exhibit of essays, photography and art will be on display at the Homestead Old Town Hall Museum, 41 North Krome Avenue, open to the public for free from Tuesday to Saturday from 1 to 5 pm.
