Sheldon Students Compete in the 2015 Federal Reserve Shred Challenge
The six juniors in fourth hour Intro to Business Class of Mrs. Christy Lockard have just completed their projects and essays that were submitted to the Kansas City Federal Reserve in 2015 Federal Reserve Shred Challenge.
Requirements of the 2015 Federal Reserve Shred Challenge were as follows:
- Students had to create an original work of art to depict the theme, “Creating a Budget.” Each student received two bags of shredded currency from the Federal Reserve. Their artwork could have been two- or three-dimensional and could be no larger than 12 inches cubed. All mediums were welcome but they had to visible use at least 60 percent of the shredded currency.
- Students also had to compose an essay of approximately 250 words, describing how their artwork reflects the theme.
The six juniors that entered the competition are: Zoey Bray, Amy Brzuchowski, Logan Lamb, Kylie Leavell, Bailee Tripp, and Brooke Tripp. After making their artwork and composing their essay’s, a picture of the artwork and a Word File containing the essay had to be submitted to the Kansas City Federal Reserve which was done last Thursday.
The Kansas City Federal Reserve will notify winners around April 3. We are in great hopes that we will have some winners from Sheldon High School.
The pictures of the artwork and the essays have been loaded on the Business/Christy Lockard tab on the Sheldon website for everyone to see and read!
