A civic organization honors some young South Georgia artists for their impressive work. The Dougherty Country Kiwanis Club choice more than 30 winners at its annual art contest Sunday.

This is the 24th year of the competition which is open to young artists from 6th to 12th grade.

Many of the artists here say they are happy to be awarded for doing what they love to do. "My mother is an artist and my grandmother is an artist so I guess I inherited her genes," says Katie Bacon overall art contest winner.

First place winners from the competition will go on represent Dougherty county in the Kiwanis National children's art contest.
