TEAM POLKIE SCORES POINTS WITH KIDS!


Tax Collector's Office Closed Monday, February 18

02/20/13 - BARTOW

Lights, Camera, Action! As Joe Tedder, Tax Collector, approached the podium and began speaking, a hush fell across the audience as excited fifth graders squirmed in their chairs and parents jockeyed for the best seat in the house to witness their child's award presentation.

With over 120 honorees, their parents and siblings, grandparents and a host of teachers, principals and school administrators in attendance, Kids Tag Art hosted a well-received recognition ceremony and reception for the 2012-2013 Kids Tag Art Awards of Distinction honorees.

Following brief remarks in which local officials from the School Board, Polk Museum of Art, BoCC, Polk Arts Alliance and Major Sponsor Southern Homes all participated, children filed across the stage, shaking hands and receiving their certificate of distinction.

Then it was on to the museum to see their artwork on display. Along the way, parents got one last chance to purchase their child's artwork.

A big crowd assembled at Polk Museum of Art for refreshments and more picture-taking with the Tax Collector.

Congratulations to all the 2012-2013 Kids Tag Art Awards of Distinction honorees!
