I won a blue ribbon today at the DACS – Fine Arts Fair. That’s Delaware Association of Christian Schools. They had a fair today that had Fine Arts and also Music.
I entered my project in Woodworking Grade 5-6. The requirements were that I had to do everything myself. My father could setup the tools but I had to operate them. I still have all ten fingers.
I had to do a drawing of what I was going to create with measurements. How I happened to come up with the idea etc. All joints were mortise and tenon. The top was screwed on with 4 – figure 8 clips.
All entries were judged and were assigned points as the judges desired. You were not in competition with anyone else, it was just Points that matched certain criteria.
My entry won within the highest award range – Professional – Blue Ribbon.
