Inglewood 5th Grader from Parent School Takes 1st Place in Global Art Contest and Wins Trip to Monaco!
Aniya Conner, a fifth grader in Inglewood Unified, leaves Jan. 14 with her family to spend two weeks in Monaco and attend the 38th Annual Monte-Carlo International Circus Festival. Currently attending Frank D. Parent Elementary School, Aniya submitted a beautiful piece of art that took first place among many hundreds of submissions in a worldwide art contest sponsored by H.S.H. Princess Stephanie of Monaco herself. The all-expenses paid trip was the first prize of the contest.
“I am so excited!” she exclaimed at an informal ceremony this week honoring her and the other Parent students who participated in the contest. A crew from Channel 2 News was on hand to do an on-camera interview of Aniya which should air soon.
Our story of Aniya’s achievement and her budding talent as an artist couldn’t be told without telling another story of remarkable, unheralded people in our schools and community dedicated to giving our children a chance to create endless opportunities for their futures. It would not have happened without Eleanor Wallace, Parent School’s After School Education and Safety (ASES) Coordinator, who for many years has donated countless hours of her time each week serving students in enrichment and intervention programs that she creates and conducts after school and on Saturdays.
