Former G.W. Students in Art Competition Finals


Two Alexandria City Public Schools students, Alexandra Lemke and Ana Blanco Arqueta, have been selected as finalists in an international art competition for Save the Frogs.

Last spring, as eighth-grade students attending George Washington Middle School, Lemke and Arqueta submitted watercolor paintings supporting the Save the Frogs organizations mission: To protect amphibian populations and the habitats in which they live, and to create a society that respects, enjoys and protects nature and wildlife. Their creations were among those selected as semifinalists from close to 400 entries and now have a chance to take the top prize.
