Art teacher Lindsey Roberts received a first-place award for her back to school bulletin board.

“I participate in the competition every other year, and I take the competition pretty seriously. I’m a pretty competitive person, so the only thing I like more than competition is art competitions,” said Roberts.

Teachers who participate hope to win cash rewards. First place wins $100, and there are monetary prizes for second and third place as well.

“I usually take four to six hours to create my bulletin boards, and this one took about five hours. I also have a wicked stapler blister to prove it,” said Roberts.

All teachers can participate in this annually held competition.

“My other art teacher friends get jealous of the competition we have at Ocean Lakes,” said Roberts. “I like that it’s a tradition for teachers and has always been kept at Ocean Lakes, even through different principals.”
