Two students in Cobb schools are among winners of the 2014 Atlanta High School Art Exhibition.

This year’s winners share in nearly $40,000 in scholarships and prizes for this professional-level competition that is sponsored and funded by the Atlanta Dogwood Festival.

Christina Voss, a junior at Walton High School won second place for her piece “Up and Up.”

Kendyll Romine, a senior at North Cobb Christian School, won sixth place for a piece titled “The Twelve Dancing Princesses.”

AHSAE received more than 700 entries from talented young artists throughout Atlanta and Georgia this year, and the best 117 were displayed at the 78th Annual Atlanta Dogwood Festival April 11 to 13. The juried event featured nine winning pieces, four honorable mentions and a People’s Choice Award, which was determined as festival attendees visited the AHSAE and voted.

The art exhibition grows in importance each year to the participating students as arts programs throughout the state are met with budget cuts. Its significance has been repeatedly recognized by the International Festival & Events Association’s Annual International Competition where the Atlanta High School Art Exhibition has received gold, silver and bronze awards.
