STM had two award winners at the Central Illinois High School Art Exhibition! Amelia Case won an Honorable Mention for her digital painting and Isabella Taylor won a 3rd Runner Up overall in the show. There was only one winner per category and one Best in Show, with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd runners up overall and 10 Honorable Mentions. There were close to 400 entries! So this is really an achievement! Great work ladies! (Literally!)
