State Rep. Peter MacGregor recently announced the winners of his elementary school student art contest. MacGregor extended this contest to all elementary school students within the 73rd District and winners earned a pizza party for their entire class.

“I am extremely impressed with the talent and creativity of the children in the 73rd District,” said MacGregor, R-Rockford. “Providing my youngest constituents with pizza parties to recognize their hard work is the least I can do. I look forward to displaying their beautiful artwork in my office and showing off the talent of local children to my colleagues.”

MacGregor and his staff visited classrooms at Kent City, Cedar View and North Oakview elementary schools on May 13 to congratulate the winners and deliver the pizza for their parties.
