Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Five students from Lexington-Richland District Five are being celebrated for winning a statewide economics poster contest.
The contest asks elementary and middle school students to illustrate economic concepts including: scarcity, opportunity cost, and goods and services.
The winners of this year's SC economic poster contest include Harbison West Elementary fourth grader Dixon Boaz, Nursery Road Elementary fourth grader Chrissy Dobrowolski, Lake Murray Elementary second grader Ellison Harris, Ballentine Elementary third grader Drew Pifer and Dutch Fork Middle eighth grader Graeme Wolverton.
These students are among 16 other students that were selected out of 700 that entered the contest.
District Five Social Studies Coordinator Melony Sanford expressed the district's excitement stating, "We are elated that we had numerous District Five students winning this year's contest and that so many of our students are taking an interest in the study of economics."
The winner's artwork will be published in SC Economics' upcoming Economics Concepts Calendar and they will have their birthdays printed in the calendar as well.
The calendars are distributed to the schools of the winners at the beginning of the school year.
