-A A +A


Taylor County High School students recently participated in Citizens Bank and Trust Co.'s first Independence Day art contest.

Students from Campbellsville and Taylor County high schools were asked to create a piece of art that made them think about their own personal experiences of the Taylor County Fourth of July celebration.

The winning school, TCHS, won $500 to go toward its art program. First place went to TCHS senior Christa Thomas, who won $300. Emily Swafford, also a TCHS senior, placed second and took home $150. Marshall Steele, a TCHS senior, won third place and received $50.

Winning art will be displayed online at www.facebook.com/cbtky and in the business's windows during the Fourth of July Celebration.
