Artists win contest

•The artwork of five Sumner School District students was chosen from 190 entries in the Tacoma Art Museum’s annual Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) contest.

Bonney Lake high senior Alycia Wolfe earned first place, a $100 gift card and a museum family membership. Third place went to Mountain View Middle School’s Molly Rayl and honorable mentions included John Lohman, Jeremy McPherson and Alexander Alvarez.

The contest was open to students in grades six through 12 and all winners were invited to create a traditional sand painting at the museum with artist Fulgencio Lazo and members from Tacoma’s Centro Latino community.

Band takes third place

• Sumner High’s marching band and color guard put on their best brass in October during the eighth annual Harvest Marching Band Festival in Yakima and walked away with a third-place finish.

Their entry included Disney’s “Fantasmic” in the Best Brass and Winds division.

They will participate in Macy’s Holiday Parade and Star Lighting Friday in Seattle.
