************************************     Gig Harbor High School is well represented in this year's poster competition. Shelby Workman from GHHS created the illustration that will be used on all our promotional materials for the festival. She calls her collage "Blue Heron." Linsey Shalo won second place and Connor Smith-Maxwell took third place. A drawing by Kevin Jansen will be made into a coloring page for use in the childrens art-play area.

    Once again, Timberland Bank is the primary festival sponsor. We're deeply grateful for their support! Thanks also to the City of Gig Harbor for permitting us to use Judson Street and for promoting the festival.

    Proceeds from the Art Festival provide art scholarships for local students and PAL members. Proceeds are also shared with the Gig Harbor community and out-of-town visitors through our art shows, workshops and other educational programs.

    Our high school scholarship winners for 2016 were Cassandra Skanes and Annabelle Yedinak from Peninsula High School and Tova Beck, Claire Gostin, Elyse Miyake and Zachary Thomson from Gig Harbor High School. No students from South Kitsap High School or Henderson Bay High School applied this year. A primary requirement of our scholarships is that recipients must continue their art studies beyond high school. Congratulations and best wishes to these talented young artists!
