RHS Scholarship Award Recipients

Congratulations to the following Rockford High School art students for earning top ten honors in the “ART IT UP” contest: Lauren Gantz, Sarah Puett, and Emily Welsh. This contest was created by Mr. Jerry Berta as a 2012 Art Prize Entry.

For the “ART IT UP” contest, students were asked to create artwork that could be used as a surface treatment for a Fiat 500. Emily came in 2nd place and will receive a $600 scholarship for her prize. Lauren and Sarah will each be awarded $150 scholarships for making it into the top ten.
