Congratulations to the all the FPS Middle School and High School Visual Art students who were selected by their art teachers to participate in this year’s Massachusetts State Scholastic Art Competition! More than 150 students from Annie Sullivan, Horace Mann, and Remington Middle Schools and Franklin High School had their artwork chosen for this competition, FPS’s strongest showing ever. This is a testimony to the beautifully creative and skillful work these art students are capable of and to the art faculty who nurture students’ creative, critical thinking, and problem-solving abilities.
The Franklin School District is proud to announce that 36 students received awards in this competition: 11 Gold Key Awards; 8 Silver Key Awards; and 17 Honorable Mentions. The students garnering awards are in the attached worksheet. Franklin's 11 Gold Key and 8 Silver Key winners' artwork will be shown from Monday, February 13 through Friday, April 20, 2012 at the State Transportation Building in Boston. The exhibit will be open Weekdays - 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. including holidays and Saturdays & Sundays - 12:00 noon - 4:00 p.m.
Additionally, the work of the entire 150+ Franklin Students will be on display at Franklin High School's Gallery 218 in late April and May when all the work returns to the district. Please join me in congratulating all these wonderful young artists and celebrating their hard work and creative spirits!
