Odessa Mix, a sixth-grade student at Coronado Middle School, has taken the first step to becoming an internationally recognized artist by winning a local competition sponsored by the Catalina/Oro Valley Lions Club. 

“Children know peace better than any other. Their youth is their innocence,” the 11-year-old said. 

The poster was selected from 22 entries by a team of teachers and students appointed by CMS art teacher Jennifer Pike.

Odessa’s poster was chosen for its originality, artistic merit, and portrayal of the contest theme, “Children know peace.” 

Two other sixth-grade students were chosen as second and third place winners.  They are second-place winner Ashley Clark and third-place winner Rudy Vargas.

Odessa’s poster will advance to face stiff competition through the district, multiple district and international rounds of competition if she is to be declared the international grand-prize winner. 

One grand-prize winner and 23 merit-award winners will be selected. The grand prize includes a cash award of $2,500, plus a trip for the winner and two family members to New York City, N.Y., for the awards ceremony at Lions Day with the United Nations. 

The three contestants received gift cards for their efforts at the local level.

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
