Maconaquah Elementary fifth-grader Kaylin Cook was one of 150 regional winners in a fine arts contest sponsored by the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis.

There were 26,000 entries statewide, grades 1 to 12, for the contest, which is held every five years in conjunction with the violin competition. Maconaquah’s second, third and fifth graders participated, and 18 entries from the school were sent to regional judging in Fort Wayne. Five entries from each level continued to the state contest, and 30 grand winners were selected from the five levels.

This project is a good lesson in crossing curriculums of music, poetry, literature and art. The creative expression of the students is celebrated in their originality, quality of workmanship, and representation of the violin. The grand award artwork will be exhibited in various locations throughout Indiana before finally being displayed during the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis, Sept. 10 to 26.
