Fourth-grader Anna Stratman was recently awarded a T-shirt and wristband to enjoy rides at the Blue Ridge Music and Barbecue Festival for artwork she created in honor of the festival. Tryon Elementary art teacher Clara Rogers had two classes of fourth-graders draw scenes of animated pigs either playing music or eating. Stratman’s artwork was selected out of 40 other posters currently hanging in the Tryon Post Office. Shown with Stratman, left to right, are Rogers, festival chairman Chuck Britton and merchandise chairman Phillip Edwards. (photo by Samantha Hurst)
