Shirley Alexander is the Art Teacher at Caddo Magnet High School and she tried to win a nationwide contest to bring funds to her art program.

Vans Shoes is giving out $50,000 to the school with the most votes...but the schools were divided into regions and Magnet lost by about 200 votes to a school from Kentucky.  But Magnet did get more than 10,000 votes and finished second in the overall voting!!  Schools with fewer votes will go on to the finals....since they won the voting in their region!!  Here's the link to see the results:
