2016 Student Competition Winner List

On Sunday, February 28th, Paulding Fine Arts Association held a Reception for the students and their parents at the Dallas Civic Center, then announced the Awards for the 29th Annual Student Art Competition. People enjoyed seeing the student's artwork and meeting the talented students.

This year we had 66 entries. 13 schools and 2 home school students participated. The top entries were from Poole with 26 entries, Nebo with 12 entries, Baggett with 11 entries, and Hopp Frog Music and Arts Academy with 5 entries.

Many THANKS to the parents and teachers who encouraged the students to enter the art competition and for supporting the Fine Arts in Paulding County!

We want to thank The Paulding Trophy Shop for our place ribbons again this year.
We want to thank artists, Mersia Martin and Robin Gant, for being our judges this year.
Many Paulding Fine Arts Volunteers helped with the Student Art Show this year: Leslie Grant, Joyce Walraven, Faye McLain, Thomas MacMillan, Judy Cooper, Julia Lindsey, Bruce Henry, Peggy Greenwood, Ken and Claudia McGarity, Paulette Cheek and Peggy Cline. Thanks for making this happen for the students!
