Lici Chavez has won two nice prizes lately for her self-portrait project. She won the Best of Show in the Arrowmont Student Art Contest last spring and received $250.00 cash there, and then she received an honorable mention at the East Tennessee Regional Student Art Competition at the Knoxville Museum of Art in December. Her prizes there included a Gift Certificate to Jerry's Artarama and a scholarship offer from Cumberland University. I am sending you a photo of Lici with her drawing.
Faith Harvey has also won some nice awards.
