Six Students Earn Honors at Congressional District High School Awards
On March 30, six students from the Berkeley Upper Division Art Department were recognized for their achievements in “Artistic Discovery,” the 14th Congressional Art Competition for High School Students. The competition is for public and private high school students from the Tampa Bay area. Winners in various categories were recognized by Congresswoman Kathy Castor and their pieces of art are collectively on display at the Tampa Museum of Art.
Of the 13 schools that submitted work to the juried exhibition, 12 schools were selected, contributing 48 pieces that comprise the exhibit. All six entries from Berkeley received special recognition for acceptance. Those students are Arielle Bader, Stephanie Columbus, Carli Constant, Addison Grams, Jordan Lowrey, Logan Weldon. Three Berkeley students received further distinguished awards for their art work. An Honorable Mention award was given to Jordan Lowrey for her colored pencil drawing. Addison Grams received the only Photography Award from the Florida Photographic Museum. For her photograph, Logan Weldon received a third-place Overall Award.
The exhibit at the Tampa Museum of Art runs through April 11th. Congratulations to all participants!
