Ridgeland kindergartner wins art contest

Posted: Updated:

Jackson, MS (WLBT) - A very special honor we want to tell you about for a kindergartner at Ann Smith Elementary in Ridgeland.

Bec Carpenter has been selected as one of the winners of Sprout's "What Have You Learned" contest.  Thursday, Bec and his class got to watch his artwork featured on national television and on-line.

Five-year-old Bec drew his artwork during Fire Safety Awareness week after the Ridgeland Fire Department visited the school and educated the students. His work depicts all he's learned about fire trucks, firefighters and fire safety.

Bec says, "I did the work at school, then I sent it in to Sprout.  The judges looked at my paper and said I was a winner."

 Bec says he wants to be a firefighter when he grows up.
