This image of birch trees on a winter night was created by a second-grader, Benicio Avila of Lewiston, who goes to Orchards Elementary School. It's been selected as the grand prize winner in the State Department of Education's 2012 Holiday Card Contest, and will be featured on cards sent to schools, districts and others; the young artist also will receive a certificate and copies of the greeting card to share with family and friends. “We are so proud of Benicio Avila for being selected as the statewide holiday art contest winner,” said Joy Rapp, Superintendent of the Lewiston School District. “His artwork is unique, and he has already developed his own style. His card is an amazing example of art work as a creative form of expression.”
