Charlotte Wood student wins statewide art contest

Pressley's Paris photo 'Metro' honored by California Federation of Women's Clubs

Charlotte Wood Middle School eighth-grader Georgia Pressley earned top marks from the California Federation of Women's Clubs, recently winning in the middle school category of the organization's annual art contest for her photograph, "Metro."

Pressley's award-winning photograph depicts a train moving through an underground Parisian rail station.

"Metro" took home first-place in the 2016 California Federation of Women's Clubs Art Contest for the sixth- to eighth-grade photograph division when the winners were announced at the federation's convention in Irvine last month.

The Danville Women's Club recognized the local teen for her state win during a luncheon last week.

Pressley earned entry into the statewide contest by winning the local district-level competition, organized by the General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC) Mount Diablo District Women's Club. She beat out 17 other entrants in the photography category for sixth- to eighth-graders at the local level.
