Wellington Art Society Announces Winners Of Annual Art Scholarships

After a brief meeting, the highlight of the evening will be the scholarship awards presentation. The jury’s selection, based on artistic and creative excellence, was made from entries submitted by students from Palm Beach County schools. All entries demonstrated dedication, talent and hard work.

The award recipients for 2024 are: Lea Abito of Jupiter High School, Lili-Rose Leonard of West Boca Raton High School and Isabella Sanchez of Wellington High School.

The 2024 scholarship award was generously donated by Dr. Vincent Apicella and Premier Family Health.

The scholarship program was established in 2001 to provide scholarships to talented young artists for art-related college and university expenses and tuition costs. Over the past 22 years, the Wellington Art Society has awarded more than $120,000 in scholarships to some of the brightest and most creative students within the community. Past recipients have gone on to become educators, illustrators, authors, curators, artistic directors, professional artists and art advocates.

To support the scholarship program, the group relies solely upon money raised from donations, membership dues, monthly raffles, artist exhibitions, municipal art shows and commissions.
