Carroll wins statewide calendar contest

The artwork design of Pattison Elementary fifth-grader Sydney Carroll captured first place for Clermont County in this year’s Ohio Children’s Trust Fund child abuse prevention calendar art contest.

Sponsored by Clermont County Family & Children First, the calendar art coloring contest was open to fifth-graders in all of Ohio’s 88 counties; Sydney took the top prize in Clermont.

The top 12 statewide designs, one for each month of the year, were chosen from hundreds of received entries.

The unique design that Sydney Carroll, 11, created was one of a rainbow and clouds.
