DCSD announces 2020 Art in Business grand prize winners
The Darlington County School District has announced four grand prize winners of its annual Art in Business program. The district also announced 18 other school winners.
Art in Business creates partnerships with local businesses and organizations to celebrate the school district’s best visual artists.
The 18 school winners will hang in sponsoring businesses for a year before returning to the district, while the four grand-prize winners will hang permanently in the district’s administrative offices.
The four grand prize winners, who span four predetermined grade ranges, are:
·Nevaeh Garcia, Cain Elementary School, Grades K-2
·Jordynn Odom, Brunson-Dargan Elementary School, Grades 3-5
·Trinity Robinson, Darlington Middle School, Grades 6-8
·Tatum Clontz, Mayo High School for Math, Science and Technology, Grades 9-12
Those students’ art teachers are Jhemar Sabido (both Garcia and Odom), Nena McConnell and Lyn O’Donnell, respectively.
Each school selected its school winner. A pool of judges composed of sponsors, art educators from other South Carolina school districts and professional artists selected the grand prize winners through an online balloting system. Each school winner will be mailed a $50 prize check and a ribbon. Each grand prize winner will be mailed a grand prize ribbon, and their art teachers will each receive $200 for art supplies.
