Two Vallejo classrooms celebrated victory Saturday when they took the top prize in their division for best recycled art piece.
“We rolled up paper and put them together to make a heart,” said Federal Terrace Elementary School second-grader Zuzeth Ibarra, 8, about the project.
The heart sculpture was a collaboration between Elizabeth Lewis’ second-grade class and Lani Ramos’ kindergarten class at Federal Terrace. Ramos brought the idea to Lewis to submit a joint entry for the annual Recycled Sculpture and Art contest.
“It looked really nice,” said second-grader Adriana Vittelli, 8.
