Jackson High School (JHS) senior Ashley Butts was recently honored by the Jackson City Schools Board of Education for being named the top winner in this year's Ohio Children's Trust Fund "30-minute Heroes" Youth Art Contest.

During the Tuesday night, May 8 meeting, JHS Principal Thad Haines introduced Butts as well as JHS art instructor Shaun Gentry and spoke a bit about what the contest entailed. Designed to raise awareness about the importance of child abuse and neglect prevention, Haines stated the contest was open to students in grades K-12 from throughout Ohio.

"Students were encouraged to create a powerful and creative work of art conveying the message that everyone has a role in child abuse and neglect prevention, and that anyone can be a hero in the eyes of a child," Haines explained.

As Butts was named the overall winner in the state, Haines said the JHS art department will be receiving a $5,000 check.

"We are deeply indebted to her," he said. "This is just one way for us to honor her."
