Two Copper Mill Elementary students, Abigail Byrd, a fifth-grader, and Janae D’Arensbourg, a sixth-grader, will represent the Zachary Community School District in the Louisiana School Board Association’s art contest.

The contest invites all school districts from around the state to participate in creating art that reflects images depicting buildings, people, scenes and products from and of Louisiana, according to district officials.

Byrd’s image depicts a camp in a Louisiana swamp, and D’Arensbourg’s painting is of a cotton field.

The students’ artwork will be displayed Feb. 22-24 during the 2015 School Board Association’s annual convention in Shreveport.
