Lucerne, Safeway Inc.'s exclusive dairy brand, has announced Kayla A. of Phoenix, Ariz., as the winner of its $30,000 grand prize in the Eighth Annual Lucerne The Art of Dairy Art Contest.

The Lucerne The Art of Dairy art contest provides high school students the opportunity to make their artwork “legenDairy” on an unconventional canvas – a life-sized fiberglass cow. Since the inception of the contest in 2005, Safeway has contributed more than $373,000 to schools, teachers, and students.

This year, more than 6,500 entries were received from schools across the country. From those, nine finalists were chosen to transfer their designs to large fiberglass cow sculptures. Then, America decided the winner via online voting from April 17 thru May 17, while the finalist cows were on display in Safeway stores across the country.

Kayla, a sophomore at Northwest Christian School, receives $20,000 for her school's art department, plus $5,000 for herself and $5,000 for her art teacher. Students from Bellingham, Wash., and La Veta, Colo., also took home prizes.

Kayla titled her design “Moovin' Along.” On the inspiration for her design, Kayla wrote “Imagine hiking across ice cream mountains and whipped creams now trying to reach the cherry on top of the sundae. Imagine floating down a river of strawberry milk in the creamy caverns.”
