Three students from Longview Public Schools were recently recognized by the Longview City Council at its monthly City Council meeting for their entries in the Historic Preservation Month Photo Contest. Two of the students attended the meeting and were personally recognized and applauded by the council.

The contest was to take a strategic picture of any structure or landmark within Longview city limits that is 50 years or older. The contest was open to the whole community, with a special category for grades 6-12. As part of a lesson in Mr. Higgins’ RAL marketing class on “Digital Content Marketing”, students were encouraged to enter the contest.

Two students from R.A. Long were selected as a winner and an honorable mention, and one student from Mark Morris was selected as an honorable mention, who entered as part of her digital photography class.

The students are:

  • Kylee Newman – RAL – Winner for her photo of the Longview Community Church bells
  • Angelina Chy – RAL – Honorable Mention for her photo of Lake Sacajawea
  • Zoey Shine – MM – Honorable Mention for her photo of the Quonset Hut on Florida St

For their efforts, all three students’ photos were enlarged, professionally mounted on foam board and placed on display in City Hall for 4 weeks. Great job!
