Join me in congratulating the below students, who had work juried into the Scholastic Art Awards 2022 Regional Competition.
It bears repeating:
Each year I go through the list of schools that submit work and recognize that our kids compete against the first, second, and sixth-ranked high school art programs in FL, and I swell with pride at the effort and results of our kids, who are also athletes, scholars, active for social justice, and care so deeply for their communities they invest hundreds of hours in service to them--just engaged and successful at so many things.
The students will be celebrated and their artworks showcased via a Virtual Exhibition on Scholastic's Visual Arts SharePoint page, as well as on the Rubell Museum website. I will send that out when I get the information.
