Laura Brown of Monomoy Regional High School, Finora Reilly of Dennis-Yarmouth High School, Rowan Rountree-Hanscom of Sandwich High School, and Emily Williams of Sturgis Public Charter School, and will each receive a scholarship of $500 in the form of a gift certificate for the purchase of art supplies and a set of artist grade pastels.
