A three-member panel of judges from the Valley Art Association selected the winners from a student exhibit at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts in May, said Clyde Roberts, association president.
The winners are: Boonsboro High School, Michele Mertz; Clear Spring, Grant Lagerhausen; Hancock, Jessica Emerson; North Hagerstown High, Shalisha Mason; Smithsburg, Nikki Barkefelt; South Hagerstown High, Emily Mertz; and Williamsport, Matt Hobby.
The students were presented with $50 checks and their works were put on display at the Mansion House, Roberts said.
The artwork represented a variety of subject matter from pumpkins to Star Wars characters, incorporating oils, watercolors, pencil and papier-mch techniques.
