Honorable mention award-winners included eighth graders Bethany Hook, Jalyn Henry, Kylie Russo, Alissa Bova, Johnathan Dion and Mary Crandall.

“Congratulations to the award-winning artists from EJD,” said EJD art teacher Beth Pritchard.

For more than 70 years, school-aged artists across Central New York have participate in the annual event recognizing the artistic accomplishments of students.

The competitive program showcases artwork from grades 7-12 and features nearly 1,300 pieces of art.

According to Pritchard, nearly 70 artists judged the submitted works, which ranged from paintings to photography and 3-D pieces.

She noted that the judges were impressed with the Phoenix students’ work and applauded the winners for their efforts.

The artwork will be on display through March 2 at the Whitney Applied Technology Center at Onondaga Community College.

The exhibit is free and open to the public.
