Over 175 Clay County student artists answered our call and submitted their artwork for the chance to have their design featured at this year's Concert on the Green event and win a $500 scholarship. We were overwhelmed by the talent and the creativity we saw from our county's students!

The Clay County Schools participating this year were: Annunciation Catholic School, Clay High School, Fleming Island High School, Lake Asbury Elementary, Lake Asbury Junior High School, Orange Park Elementary, Orange Park High School, Seven Bridges Preparatory School, St. Johns Country Day School, and Thunderbolt Elementary

The contest, which encourages school art students to create art representative of musical performances in an outdoor setting, was coordinated by Great Hang Ups Gallery of Fleming Island. This year's judges were Beth Haizlip, artist for the 2007 Jacksonville Jazz poster; Pauline Dickson, artist and art teacher in the Clay County School System for over 30 years; and Dee Roberts, artist for over 40 years and 2015 Jacksonville Watercolor Artist of the Year.
