Ten students get scholarship funds
Goodyear, Ariz. (April 10, 2018) – Twice a year, Goodyear Mayor Georgia Lord offers students an opportunity to show off their love of art and enter to win scholarship money.
“These kids are really talented,” said Mayor Lord. “Every time I see the entries, I am amazed at the quality of the work. It gets harder and harder to judge and pick winners, but I want to encourage our young artists to try hard and they will reap the rewards.”
During the annual Goodyear Lakeside Music Festival on April 7, Mayor Lord announced the winners in front of a gathered crowd. The 10 winners will split $1,700 in scholarships, made possible by Palm Valley Pediatric Dentistry.
The artwork is on display through April 24 at Goodyear Branch Library, 14455 W. Van Buren Street, Suite C101.
