A Pilot Butte Middle School art student recently learned her landscape  titled "Violet Mountains" has won a National American Vision Gold Medal in the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards competition.

 

Eighth grader Olivia Springer is one of about 2000 Middle and High School students in the nation who were chosen for the prestigious award, out of over 100,000 entries.

 

Art teacher Pat Roberts says the normally very shy Springer stepped forward when the opportunity was presented to her.

 

"When I opened up the opportunity to the students, I said find your best pieces let's enter 'em, lets enter something in scholastic. And she stepped up and said 'I want to enter scholastic this year, and I want to enter this piece.' It won a gold key locally; and then it went on for national judging and it won a national medal.  So we're heading to Carnegie Hall."

 

Roberts says they are holding fundraisers to send Olivia and her father to the awards ceremony in June.
