The Escondido Art Association presented their 2017 Scholarship awards at an awards ceremony and reception held at the Artists Gallery on March 11.
Awards were presented to the following young artists : First Place ($500) Olivia Jolly, Classical Academy H.S.; 2nd Place ($300) Charlie Ramirez, Escondido H.S.; 3rd Place ($200) Rebecca Becze, Escondido H.S.; Honorable Mention ($50) Heather Oliver, Valley H.S.
Judging the competition this year were Marcella Martin and Suzanne Nicolaison, both long-standing members of the EAA, who made their selections from among the five participating Escondido high schools.
Award money to fund the Visual Arts Scholarship Program was provided once again by sponsor Design Moe Kitchen & Bath, Grand Avenue, Escondido, and the EAA announced that they have offered to sponsor next year’s scholarship program, as well.
All student artwork submitted for the competition will remain on exhibit at the Artists Gallery on 121 W. Grand Ave., Escondido, through the month of March. We invite members of the community to stop by and view the amazing artwork presented by our budding young artists.
