The Worcester County Arts Council is proud to present a high school art competition and exhibit featuring entries submitted by local Worcester County high schools students. This competition is sponsored annually by the Berlin/Ocean City Optimists Club.

The goal of this competition is to encourage, recognize, and honor artistic expression of talented art students in Worcester County as well as to emphasize the importance and support of quality art programs.
The exhibit includes 29 paintings and drawings, entered by students representing all four Worcester County high schools and competing for a total of $1400 in cash prizes offered in this contest. All submitted entries are judged by the artist and former art educator, Thomas Hogan.

Monetary awards and ribbons for the first, second, third place, and honorable mention will be presented to students on Friday, February 9 at 6 pm during an open to the public reception to be held from 5 pm – 8 pm at the Worcester County Arts Council’s gallery located at 6 Jefferson Street in downtown Berlin.

Visitors to the exhibit will have an opportunity to vote for the “People’s Choice” award. Voting will begin on February 1 and end on February 8, 2017. Winner of the award will be announced and presented with monetary prize at the reception. Please join us as we celebrate the artistic young talent in our Community!
