Congratulations to SAEC Alumna for Winning an Art Contest
Monday, October 05, 2015
Paige Konis of Hudson Falls was one of four young artists who won the Alliance for Quality Education’s (AQE) statewide annual art contest.
Last year, Paige was a student in Jeff Plummer’s Graphic and Visual Communications program at the Southern Adirondack Education Center.
The artists were selected from 87 entries that depicted each student’s ideal school. Paige’s work of art will be imprinted on a cloth tote bag that will be given away to the 200 guests who will attend the AQE’s Champions of Education annual fundraiser on November 5 in New York City. The remaining three pieces of of the art will be framed and presented as awards at the fundraiser. Each winner also received a $100 gift card.
To be eligible, students need to be in grades K-12 in New York State.
