EJD students earn honors at Scholastic Art Show
Seven Emerson J. Dillon Middle School students represented the Phoenix Central School District and earned honors during this year’s Scholastic Art Show.
Alaina Hubbell earned a Silver Key for her submission. Honorable mention award-winners included eighth-graders Bethany Hook, Jalyn Henry, Kylie Russo, Alissa Bova, Johnathan Dion and Mary Crandall.
“Congratulations to the award-winning artists from EJD,” said EJD art teacher Beth Pritchard.
For more than 70 years, school-aged artists across Central New York have participate in the annual event recognizing the artistic accomplishments of students. The competitive program showcases artwork from grades 7-12 and features nearly 1,300 pieces of art.
According to Pritchard, nearly 70 artists judged the submitted works, which ranged from paintings to photography and 3-D pieces. She noted that the judges were impressed with the Phoenix students’ work and applauded the winners for their efforts.
The artwork will be on display through March 2 at the Whitney Applied Technology Center at Onondaga Community College. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
