Newton County School System is pleased to announce that Levi Adcox, a first grade student at Oak Hill Elementary School, has been announced as a winner in the 2010 Statewide Fire Safety Tips Calendar Poster Contest. Of the hundreds of pictures submitted from

around the state, Levi’s artwork was one of only 13 selected for publication in the calendar and will be featured during the month of November.


The contest was open to all Georgia elementary school students in grades kindergarten through five. Students were asked to create poster entries that reflected the theme, "Smoke Alarms: A Sound You Can Live With."


“Levi is a very bright, articulate child,” said Oak Hill Elementary School Principal, Dr. Brenda Gammans. “He loves a challenge

and he strives to be the best at everything he does. He is a very kind young man and is well respected by his classmates and teachers. We are so proud to have him at Oak Hill.”


Each school could submit three posters for consideration and Levi’s art teacher, Mr. Calvester Graham, Jr., selected Levi to

participate in the statewide competition and represent Oak Hill. In addition to an invitation to attend the 18th Annual Life, Fire & Safety Awards Luncheon, and the statewide publication of his poster, Levi also won a book bag full of prizes, including a wool throw,

Frisbee, flashlights, and other goodies.


According to Graham, Levi is a well?rounded student who enjoys art, school, and sports, especially collegiate football—namely the Alabama Crimson Tide.


“Levi is a young man that definitely has a bright future on the horizon,” said Graham.
