Grade 7 and 8 students at Macdonald-Cartier, along with Churchill Public School, Carl A. Nesbitt Public School, St. Raphael Catholic Elementary School and École élémentaire catholique Félix-Ricard were invited to enter the contest.
They made sketches of what New Sudbury looked like when it was a farming area between 1884 and 1939.
The sketches were then on display at the New Sudbury Shopping Centre April 7-13, and the public was invited to cast votes for their favourite sketch.
Villeneuve won the contest, followed by Félix-Ricard student Joel Guenette and Churchill student Avalon Appleton.
Her sketch will be attached to the top of street signs along Lasalle Boulevard, west of Barrydowne Road. The New Sudbury Historical Society hopes to have the sign toppers in place by the fall.
