The National Art Honor Society is preparing for its annual pumpkin-decorating contest. Participants will have the chance to create their own design on a pumpkin, and afterwards  enter their pumpkins to be judged and possibly win a prize. There will be a fee of $2 for entry to decorate.

”In the past they have done most-creative, first, second and third — little goofy, fun stuff,”  said James Finch, NAHS sponsor and digital art teacher. “They’re fun prizes.”

This event is set to take place Thursday after school in Room 5-100. Parent/teacher conference night also will be held Thursday, and parents are encouraged check out all of the designs.

“Pumpkin-painting is a really fun way touch your artistic side and also be festive on Halloween,” club member Olivia Langford said.

All of the proceeds raised are used for funding the club.
