Congrats to G. Speaks! She submitted artwork for the Louisiana School Board Association (LSBA) Artwork Contest and has been selected to represent NOLA Public Schools for the LSBA Digital Artwork Contest K-5th category. "We were so impressed with everyone's artistry and creativity which made selecting the winners very difficult with so many amazing entries. We believe their artwork truly embodied and represented characteristics of what we uniquely call home, the great state of Louisiana."
