School Board members from across the region were treated to an impressive display of artistic talent while judging the 2017 Virginia School Board Association (VSBA) Southside Regional Art Contest. That led to some tough decisions about whose artwork was the best of the best among students who entered the regional art competition.
Artwork by Clover Hill High sophomore Logan Enoch took top honors in the high school category.
“Logan’s artwork captured the attention of judges, and we’re excited that her abilities will be displayed for others to see,” said School Board member Dianne Smith, who represents Clover Hill High. “Our students’ artistic pieces of work are awe-inspiring and thought provoking, and show that we are succeeding in getting our students to be creative critical thinkers.”
The VSBA Regional Art Contest was started in 1989 to promote the artistic talents of Virginia’s public school students. For each of the nine VSBA regions, a winner is chosen for the elementary, middle and high school levels. The winning art is framed and displayed in the offices of VSBA in Charlottesville and the Richmond offices of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction.
VSBA, a voluntary, nonpartisan organization of Virginia school boards, promotes excellence in public education through leadership, advocacy and services.
