Artwork from Quesnel School District students will soon be on display in downtown.
Johnston Meier Insurance will be putting up works from 11 different schools from the area.
Branch Manager Marj Lofstrom said the display, titled Quesnel Joy, will begin on April 5, all pieces should be on display by April 12.
“Because of COVID, Johnston Meier wasn’t able to participate in a lot of events last year that were cancelled anyways,” she said. “We thought why not do something this year to bring some joy.”
Passers-by will be asked to vote on their favourite pieces, and $1,100 in downtown bucks will be given to winners and voters.
A winning student from both elementary and high school will receive $500, with one voter getting $100.
Those interested in voting will need to bring their own paper and pen to comply with COVID-19 rules. Ballots should include the voter’s name, phone number and school picked.
“We went with the schools in Quesnel because we thought it was a good way to reach out to the community,” “Everybody has someone in school, or grandkids in school. It was a good way to reach out to the full community.”
Art from 11 different schools will fill the windows of Johnston Meier’s downtown office.
