IRVING, Texas. October 18, 2000 North Lake College
student Donna Ball has been named first place winner
in the Dallas Farmers Market calendar art competition.
Ms. Ball's original computer graphics design will

will receive cash awards.

arts, photography, and computer graphics.

"will always be a student, continuously exploring,
stretching and challenging herself in the use of different
techniques and media."

second in the competition.

is open to any art student in the Dallas County Community
