WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington is full of local artistic talent. Some people paint, some sculpt, some draw, and some use sidewalk chalk.

Saturday, students from New Hanover, Hoggard, Ashley and Laney high schools took to the streets of Mayfaire to compete in the 18th annual Sidewalk Chalk Competition. The students’ expressions ranged from birds to dragons to butterflies to sea creatures. Teams have been preparing for weeks and worked diligently for two hours to complete their artistic visions.

"I just like making something out of nothing,” New Hanover High senior Courtney Wood said. “I like taking a blank piece of paper and just drawing something on it and just have people look at it and it just make them think and look at the world around them. Or a blank piece of sidewalk. It just makes people take a break out of their busy lives just to appreciate something beautiful."

Hoggard High School's sidewalk chalk dragon took the win.
