RHS student awarded $10,000 scholarship in art competition

Rockford High School (RHS) senior art student Shelby Blackmore received a $10,000 scholarship to Kendall College as part of their annual Art Day Competition held on March 19. This competition was open to students in all media, including, but not limited to, drawing, pastel, watercolor, painting, ceramics, textiles and weaving, graphic design, industrial design, furniture design, photography, and conceptual art. Students were asked to submit three of their best and original artworks by 10 a.m. Saturday and return at 2:30 p.m. for the awards presentation.

This year, there were 111 entries from three different states, including Michigan, Ohio and Illinois. Blackmore is one of 15 students selected to receive a scholarship award. Her three pieces were titled “Inspired,” “Rooted” and “Grounded.” These three pieces are part of a concentration of 12 pieces she is currently working on as part of her senior portfolio.

Blackmore’s award-winning work, along with other RHS students’ projects, will be on display at the RHS Art Show May 24-26.
