115 elementary, junior, and high school students entered the 2019 Concert on the Green Poster Competition where judges rated the art on originality, creativity, and artistic elements. The Clay County Schools participating this year were: Clay High School, Fleming Island High School, Lake Asbury Junior High School, Orange Park High School, Orange Park Junior High, Lakeside Junior High, Wilkinson Junior High, and Middleburg Elementary School.
The contest, which encourages school art students to create art representative of musical performances in an outdoor setting, was coordinated by Ms. Carron Wedlund of the Art Guild of Orange Park.
The winning posters in the Senior, Junior, and Elementary Divisions were on public display at the 2019 Clay County Fair in the J.P. Hall Pavilion. The winning posters will be on display in the art gallery at the Thrasher-Horne Center for the Arts until May 24, 2019, and can be viewed at any time that the box office is open. All student winners will be recognized and presented with prizes on May 26 at the Concert on the Green annual event held at the Plantation Sports Complex, 321 Old Hard Road in Fleming Island.
The scholarship-winning artwork, as well as artwork submitted by 20 additional students, specifically chosen by the competition judges for merit, will also be on display at the Orange Park Library during the month of July.
