September 22, 2010 - Morgan Herron, 11, was among hundreds of kids who submitted student art projects at the Oakland County Summer Arts Project, part of the 2010 Ford Arts, Beats & Eats event held recently in Royal Oak.

But Morgan, a 6th grader at Scripps Middle School, came away as a top young artist. Again.

"Over 430 student art projects were submitted," said Morgan's mom, Andrea Herron, noting student artists, ages 6-13, were allowed to submit up to two projects each, with 16 prizes awarded--four in each of four age groups.

While prizes were not ranked, Morgan's "Art Rocks" collection -- painted rocks inspired by famous artists' masterpieces -- was one of four winners in her age group.

"This is her second year to be awarded a top prize," Andrea said. "At the 2009 Arts, Beats & Eats-Pontiac, she received a first place prize, a $50 savings bond, for her artwork."

This year, Morgan took home a Citizens Bank Let It Grow Gift Account.
