OPHS student wins Concert on the Green poster contest

Posted

ORANGE PARK – An Orange Park High student’s art work will serve as the icon for this year’s Concert on the Green.

LeAnn Hilliard’s art was selected from a pool of 148 student entries from several schools in Clay County.

Students were asked to design a poster using the theme “A Symphonic Celebration of the Arts.” This year’s contest also featured a category for the military. The purpose of the contest is to encourage students to seek out and learn more about the visual arts and music.

Winning posters are currently on display in the painting and photography pavilion at the Clay County Agricultural Fair and will be displayed at the Thrasher Horne Center for the Arts after April 20 until May 25 along with 30 other posters chosen for their merit.

Members of the Art Guild of Orange Park served as judges for this year’s contest. Their decisions were based on how effective the art served as a poster as well as the artistic skill used to create them. Five finalists were chosen from the senior high, junior high and elementary categories. Awards were first, second and third place, as well as two honorable mentions named in each age group.

In the senior high category, along with Hilliard, Orange Park High student Katherine Hartshorn, won second place and St. Johns Country Day student Matthew Drake won third place. Honorable mention was awarded to Abigail Ferry and Kiala Jones, both of Orange Park High.

In the junior high category, Lake Asbury Junior High student Bryanna Walker won first place, Lakeside Junior High student Ila Gapinski won second place and Lakeside Junior High student Angela Lee won third. Honorable mention was awarded to Kane Bumpers of Lakeside Junior High and Mia Morin of St. Johns Country Day.

In the elementary category, first place went to Brady Pargman of St. Johns Country Day, second place went to Joann Mason of McRae Elementary School near Keystone Heights and third was awarded to Trista McLaine of St. Johns Country Day.

Honorable Mentions- Carleigh Kierbow and Katelyn Bielling, both from Seven Bridges School

The final display for the winning posters will be at the actual Concert on the Green on May 27, which is also where students will be presented their awards.

“We are so proud of our talented Clay County students and their teachers for such a great showing of artistic ability. Please make an effort to see their wonderful work at one of these venues,” said Carron Wedlund, poster contest chairman for Concert on the Green.

Concert on the Green is a nonprofit grassroots organization and long-standing tradition in Clay County that is dedicated to scholarships and grants for art and music education. The Concert on the Green annual festival event takes place May 27 on the campus of St. Johns Country Day School. Tickets may be purchased online at www.concertonthegreen.com or at Urban Bean Coffee House, Expressions Salon, or Arlette’s Place Gift Shop.
