First Place Winner in the 2008 Hall of Fame Student Art Contest

A Lake Cable Elementary (Jackson Local Schools) student may very well be a future artist.  Artwork by Hannah Durr, a fifth grader, earned first place honors in the 2008 Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Student Art Contest.   

2nd Place

Approximately 2,000 fourth and fifth graders from Stark County participated in the contest, which is a part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Educational Outreach Program.  In all, classes of 120 teachers from 48 schools and 15 districts took part in the educational-based art contest.  Students were instructed to put their artistic talents into a drawing to welcome out-of-town visitors to Stark County during the 2008 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival.  Each of the drawings will be placed in area hotel rooms to welcome those visitors in August.  The only criteria for the artwork were for the students to make drawings that depicted football activities, the Pro Football Hall of Fame, or Pro Football Hall of Fame Festival activities.

For her winning entry, Hannah won a replica autographed football that includes the signatures of each member of the Class of 2008 – Fred Dean, Darrell Green, Art Monk, Emmitt Thomas, Andre Tippett and Gary Zimmerman – in a collector’s case with an engraved plaque and she also received four admission tickets to the Pro FootballHall of Fame.  In addition, Hannah and her classmates in Joan Griest’s class at Lake Cable Elementary were treated to a pizza party and an assortment of Hall of Fame gift items.  Hannah, 11, is the daughter of Craig and Dana Durr.

3rd Place

Second and third place prizes were also awarded.  Shane Reed Jr., 10, of Northwood Elementary School in North Canton (teacher, Carrie Stehura) earned second place.  For his efforts, he received a replica Class of 2008 autographed football in a collector’s case, four tickets to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and an assortment of Hall of Fame gift items for his entire class.  He is the son of Shane and Aimee Reed.

Troy Hankins, a 10-year-old at Lake Cable Elementary in Jackson (teacher, Christy Gossett) won third place this year.  Troy, son of Harold and Jennifer Hankins, won a mini Hall of Fame Helmet in a collector’s case, four tickets to the Pro Football Hall of Fame and an assortment of Hall of Fame gift items for his entire class.

The three winning entries will be on display in the Hall of Fame throughout the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement celebration.
