WHS Student Wins Best Of Show At ArtiGras Youth Art Competition

The winners of the 2019 Hanley Foundation Youth Art Competition were announced during the first day of the ArtiGras Fine Arts Festival last month.

More than 200 students in kindergarten through 12th grade submitted artwork for the competition in mediums ranging from pencil and crayon to chalk and paint. Artwork was judged by local artists, including ArtiGras poster artist Derek Gores and art educators, who had the daunting task of narrowing down the hundreds of entries to 75 finalists, then selecting a first, second and third place winner, along with a few honorable mention winners for each grade level.

Kassandra Diaz from Wellington High School took home best of show for high school entries, while Vaughan Rockwell from St. Mark’s Episcopal School was the middle school honoree for best of show. Ethan Earley, also from St. Mark’s Episcopal School, took home best of show for elementary school student submissions.
