Our Mayflower Quilt

Scotts' Miracle Gro hosted a national contest for children in grades K-6 to draw their state flower. Our class took the challenge, and not only learned about our state flower and created beautiful works of art, but produced a WINNER who will represent Massachusetts in the National Garden in Washington, D.C.! Please view our work and scroll down to learn more. Our winner has s beside his name.

Note: The resizing of these pictures does not do them justice. I encourage, especially parents, to copy the work of their child and enlarge it to enjoy its true beauty.

Three cheers for all our wonderful artists and a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Javier for winning and representing our great state of Massachusetts. Javier will receive $250.00 and a trip to Washington, D.C. where his work will be on over-sized posters and banners as part of the celebration for the opening of the National Gardens. WOW! Now, THAT'S Peirce Pride!
