Many students create their own works in art class, but few can imagine having their pieces displayed at a public location. Now, kids from the Indian Trail Middle School in Illinois will receive praise for their hard work at the local movie theater.

The Regal Cantera 30 cinema in Warrenville will display the children's art work in a contest that asked participants to depict characters and scenes from J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. The pieces will be exhibited in honor of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1," which debuted last week, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

"The students are very excited about participating, and the winners loved receiving free movie tickets," art teacher Pam Dujlovich told the news source. "I expect even more submissions next time."

A total of 32 pieces from sixth, seventh and eighth grade students were collected to decorate the halls of the theater. First, second and third place winners won tickets to see the movie. Honorable mentions received Harry Potter posters.

Artist jobs are projected to increase by 12 percent over the next eight years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Mentoring can help encourage students to pursue a career in the industry.
