“The artwork of all the students who participated in the TroyFest Student Art Competition is exhibited,” Smith said. “We encourage family members and friends of the arts students and the community to visit the Johnson Center during TroyFest and see the work of these talented young artists.”

The student art competition was open to students in grades K-12 in all the schools in Pike County. The competition included five categories, drawing, mixed media, sculpture, painting and printmaking for all grades. Students in grades 3-12 could also compete in photography and students in grades 9-12 could compete in computer image.

“The judges were very impressed with the quality of artwork on all levels and in all categories,” Smith said. “The students did a very good work. Their show is outstanding.”

Smith said “Best of Show” awards were presented to the top artwork on each grade level. “Best of Show” recognition went to Mary Samson Dunn, Troy Elemenary School, K-2; Yun Baik, TES, 3-5; Tatytana Lee, Charles Henderson Middle School, 6-8; Lizzie Orlofsky, Charles Henderson High School, 9-10; and Noelle Smolcic, CHHS, 11-12.
