River Parishes Hospital recently announced its monthly art winners for the month of April. They are: Curley Grady, III, a student at LaPlace Elementary School; and Nathan Bourgeois and Rowdy Scott, students at Paulina Elementary School.

Each student was awarded a $50 savings bond compliments of Capital One Bank and River Parishes Hospital. In December, each student and his or her family will be invited to a reception at the hospital, at which time three overall winners will be selected. These winners will receive $150, $100 and $50 savings bonds for first, second and third place, respectively.

The Young At Art Program is a class project for grades Pre-K through 6th and is open to schools in the river parishes area. It is a free community program, compliments of River Parishes Hospital. Classes are displayed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Interested teachers should call (985) 653-4247.
