Imagine students race at Pinewood Derby
As part of their unit on motion, gravity and friction, T.J. Gillian’s fifth-grade class at Imagine School at Town Center took part in the Pinewood Derby event during the city of Flagler Beach’s First Friday.

Students had to research many science topics to figure out how to make their car the fastest and follow all the rules of an official Pinewood Derby. Students also put their math skills to work to make sure all their cars made weight for the derby.

Despite the cold weather, the class ended up taking home the trophy for most creative cars.

DeSantis announces Congressional Art Competition
U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis’ office is accepting submissions for the 2014 Congressional Art Competition. Students may submit their original artwork for entrance into the competition through Monday, March 31.

“I look forward to seeing the creative talents from Florida’s 6th district displayed in the Capitol and my district offices every year,” DeSantis said. “I have no doubt it will be difficult for constituents to choose their favorite works of art. I encourage all eligible students to enter the competition.”

Once submitted, entries will be posted on DeSantis’ official Facebook page starting Tuesday, April 1, until Friday, April 18, and constituents will be encouraged to vote on their favorite artwork. At the end of the third week, the 10 submissions with the most “likes” will be presented to a panel of local judges from the 6th district of Florida who will then determine a winner.

The winning piece of artwork will be displayed at the U.S. Capitol for one year. The second- and third-place winners will be displayed in DeSantis’ district offices.

Teachers and students interested in the Congressional Art Competition should call 202-225-2706 or visit
