GILES ~ A River Runs Through It An Art Contest for The Children of Giles

We had an excellent selection of art turned in for the “A River Runs Through It” Giles County Art Contest. It was hard for the judges to choose, but alas, the final winners are listed below. Thank you to all who participated. We hope you enjoyed the opportunity to express your love of the New River and Giles County as much as we did receiving your beautiful pieces of art.

Liberty Brackenrich, a painting age 5


“…. She realizes the only way to feel whole again, happy again, and at
Peace again is to be like the river
To be different, to be herself, to embrace her uniqueness
To be new like the river
Like  the New River”
