Student Rocks the Competition

Robert Frost Middle School student Daniel Fisher was named a semifinalist in “Rock the Statue Green: A Transatlantic Art Contest.” District French language students participated in this worldwide competition, which celebrated the 125th birthday of the Statue of Liberty.  

Students created inspirational work through various artistic media, including songs, essays, photos and drawings, while keeping the spirit of the environment at the forefront of their visions. Daniel’s detailed and expressive drawings, presented in poster form, infused green ideals and impressed the judges, who awarded him semifinalist designation.

The program was organized by the French Embassy, in collaboration with the U.S. National Park Service, Statue of Liberty National Monument and the American Association of Teachers of French, who hosted this Franco-American contest for K-12 students in both the U.S. and France.
