    The Okaloosa Arts Alliance would also like to thank all of the Okaloosa County School students that participated in the 11th annual OAA Okaloosa County School Poster Contest and first virtual poster contest due to COVID-19. This year due to COVID-19 we asked participants to share what they have been doing or seeing during COVID-19. Although we were not able to make everyone a 1st place winner, all 77 entries online and will remain available for everyone to go enjoy. To see all the entries go online to https://www.okaloosaarts.org/annual-school-poster-contest-contest-gallery.html.
     
    Being an unusual school year, most entries are from students instead of full schools participating and we want to say thank you to every student who entered.  We also thank the art teachers and schools that had their students participate also.  Participating schools include: Rocky Bayou Christian School, Crestview High School, Niceville High School, Liza Jackson Preparatory School, Edge Elementary, Destin Elementary & Middles School, Homeschool, Okaloosa STEMM Academy, Meigs Middle School, Ruckel Middle School, Lewis Elementary &  Middle School, Plew Elementary, Walker Elementary, Shalimar Elementary, Kenwood Elementary, Bluewater Elementary and Northwood Elementary. Each 1st place prize was a $75 gift card, generously donated by Eglin Federal Credit Union, each 2nd place prize was a $50 gift card, and each 3rd place prize was a $25 gift card.  The winners and honorable mentions are as follows:
