Decatur County REMC, along with 38 other electrical offices, host a calendar art contest every year to highlight the talented youth across our state. A winning submission is chosen from each grade to be featured each month in the calendar. More than 2,200 submissions were accepted for the current promotional campaign, and St. Mary’s second-graders Abby Porter and Rileigh Hash won certificates of merit, checks for $200 each, and much notoriety for winning a month in the calendar. Here, Rileigh and Abby stand on either side of their art teacher, Carol Blankman.
