Monday, March 9th was a long and very exciting day for Addie Benedict, a first grade student at Washington Elementary. Addie woke up extra early to make the trek to the Capitol Building in Des Moines where she was recognized and honored by Governor Terry Branstad for her artwork.
Addie’s artwork and
the artwork of only twelve other K-12 Iowa students was selected for
essentially the highest honor in the state of Iowa, the Governor’s Show.
The Governor’s Show is on display in the Governor’s Offices
throughout the month of March for Youth Art Month.
student artists were given a tour of the Capitol Building and a private
reception with Governor Branstad. Joining Addie for the tour and
reception were members of her family and her art teacher Alicia
Congratulations, Addie Benedict!
