Takoma Regional Hospital walls will be adorned with student art
GREENEVILLE – The walls of the pediatric unit and the emergency department at Takoma Regional Hospital will be decorated with unique works of art – the fruits of labor provided by several talented student artists.
Takoma Regional Hospital invited all Greeneville and Greene County students to submit original works for an art competition with a theme of “hospital and healthcare heroes.” The hospital received an overwhelming response, as almost 400 students submitted their artwork.
A panel of judges selected three winners from each school grade category, kindergarten through eighth grade, including two honorable mentions. The 29 winning entries will be permanently installed in the pediatric unit and the emergency department at Takoma Regional. Each winner also received a $10 gift card from the hospital.
An awards ceremony for all contest winners and their parents will be held at 5:30 p.m., Thursday, May 15, at the Everett and Carolyn Coolidge Volunteer Conference Center at the intersection of Coolidge Street and Takoma Avenue.
All contest entries will be on display in the Mason Gallery at the General Morgan Inn from May 22 through June 30.
