Catawba County Government is partnering with Lowes Foods, Keep Catawba County Beautiful and our local schools to encourage reusable bag use and to teach our students about protecting our environment. As part of these efforts, the County had an art contest, in which students competed to have their artwork printed on reusable grocery bags.
Jimena Teron Salazar, a third grader in Mrs. Christina Recker’s classroom, won the art contest. Jimena’s artwork will be on the reusable bags for Lowes Foods. Each of the students in her class will recieve a free reusable bag and the bags will be sold in local Lowes Foods grocery stores.
Below you see the artwork that Jimena created for the reusable bag.
