Albany- The work of young Albany artists will be displayed all over the city in honor of the city's upcoming Martin Luther King Celebration.

Students from Dougherty county middle and high schools entered artwork in the competition.

Tuesday night, the top place prizes were given out, with checks of $15 and up.

"I like it because everybody will see my work and they'll see it when I start drawing again," said Corey Sumbry, a Freshman at Westover High School.

"I like the background and the blown effect from the chalk and it was interesting to me," Westover Senior Heather Hutchinson said about her piece.

Westover Senior Laura Browne's piece took the Best in Show Award. She was awarded a check for $300 for her artwork.
