Artwork by some Bethel Middle School students will hang in the state capital next month.
Representatives Dan Carter and David Scribner visited Bethel Middle School last week to meet with 6th graders and to announce the winners of an art contest they sponsored. The lawmakers gave the theme of what it means to be from Bethel.
Three winners were chosen.
The winning pieces were created by Isabella Donatucci, Ryan Dudley and Danielle Da Silva. They illustrated pieces entitled PT Barnum Circus Horses, Bethel Music Department is a Top 100 School District and Bright Futures for Bethel Children.

Sherman State Representative Richard Smith met with art students at the Sherman School to celebrate their recent illustrations of “What it means to be from Sherman, CT.” Smith asked the school to select the top two pieces of art to be displayed at the State Capitol complex during the exhibition that will take place throughout November.
Josh Schutz and Nadia Ostrosky were presented with certificates of recognition for their hard work and creativity.
