For the second consecutive year, Ennis ISD has chosen the front cover art for its annual holiday card from artwork submitted by EISD elementary school students. The winner of this year's elementary art contest is Andrea Maltos, a third grader at Travis Elementary School. Her teacher is Mrs. Holland.

Her art was chosen from a group of 10 finalists. The remaining nine finalists have thumbnails of their art on the back of the holiday greeting card. These students are: Jonathan Dixon, Lauryn Kincaid, and Daisy Cardona of Austin Elementary; Isabella Herrera, Eli Herrera, Juventino Sandoval, and Pablo Veliz of Bowie Elementary; and Faith Perez and Danny Muniz of Travis Elementary.

"We are so proud to display the immense talents of our young students," said Dr. Barbara Qualls, EISD superintendent. "It was difficult to choose a winner. We found that Andrea's entry was very original and innovative, and she provided a great image that truly evokes the spirit of the holiday season."

So that everyone has the chance to view the artwork, the card will be posted online on the EISD website at www.ennis.k12.tx.us.
