This is Brittany’s second national award after receiving an American Visions Medal for Watercolor Painting last year.
She will attend the Maryland Institute College of Art and major in Painting this fall, and she plans to stay an extra year to receive her masters in Art Education.

This year’s competition attracted 185,000 submissions in 30 categories.
They were adjudicated first locally and then nationally by panels of judges comprised of renowned artists, authors, educators and arts professionals.
The works were judged on originality, technical skill, and the emergence of personal vision or voice.
