Moncure, NC - Layne Childress, a second grader at Moncure School, is a state winner in the Arts Contest sponsored by the North Carolina Association of Educators (NCAE) Minority Affairs Commission. This is a scholarship fundraiser in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It is held each year on the Friday prior to King's birthday. Childress and other winners were announced during a banquet on January 12 at the NCAE building in Raleigh. Childress, his parents, and his younger brother attended the banquet.

Students in kindergarten through twelfth grade are encouraged to submit artwork, poetry, short stories, and essays centered on the theme of unity and peace. One of the requirements for the artwork submissions was that they include historical events of people, places, or things. Childress' artwork title was “Together We Are All One Family” and incorporated teepees, log cabins, igloos, apartment buildings, and houses. NCAE kept the artwork and notified the winners by mail in December.

Childress is a student in Brooke Freehling's class at Moncure School. Freehling is an NCAE member and encouraged her students to enter the contest. Four second graders in her class submitted work.
