Bridget Howard of Cowan, a junior at the June Buchanan School in Knott County, recently won first place in the Kentucky High School Art Competition.
Ms. Howard’s winning entry was a “Love Letter Dress,” in which actual love letters of all kinds were transferred on to fabric. She then sewed the dress herself and accented it with black lace and red ribbon.
Ms. Howard is the daughter of Rick Howard and the late Denise Howard. She is vice-president of the ACE Club, an art and cultural enrichment club at JBS. She will also be visiting Germany this summer as an exchange student.
Ms. Howard received an award for her work at Dixie Heights High School in northern Kentucky on April 17 at the All-State Art Reception.
