Each year, KEA sponsors the #DifferenceMakers art contest. The criteria for the contest is for students to creatively portray an educator who made a difference in their life and includes their subject’s job within public education.  Awards are given in each of four grade spans. Although KEA only selects one winner in each category, we are always amazed at the immense artistic talent of Kentucky public school students.


This year, Aubryona Wilson from Eden Elementary in Inez, Kentucky, won in the P-2 category with a portrait of her teacher, Ms. Slone, entitled “The Wonderful Teacher.”


Macy Miller of Farmer Elementary in Louisville, won the 3-5 grade category with her entry of a portrait of her bus driver, entitled, “Bus Driver - Mr. Jeff.”


Eh Wah of Owensboro Innovation Middle School in Owensboro, won the 6-8 grade category with her entry, entitled “Duke.”


Jesse McClain from Washington county High School in Springfield, Kentucky was the winner in the 9-12 grade category with a portrait of his teacher Ms. King, entitled “Wonder Woman.”


Many thanks to all the students across the Commonwealth who submitted artwork for the contest and congratulations to our four winners of the #DifferenceMakers Student Art Contest.
