Pilot Butte Middle School art student Olivia Springer is heading to Carnegie Hall in June to be honored by the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards for her artwork.
Springer - an eighth grader says she was very surprised when she got the news that her landscape print - called "Violet Mountains" was chosen for one of the gold medals - but her classmates we not surprised.
"They weren't surprised really. I also got the “Most Artistic Award” for the yearbook this year, so most of them know I’m pretty artistic."
Springer says she wants to go to college and get an art degree and work in the field, but not sure what that will be.
She says she is looking forward to the trip to New York for the ceremony and plans to see a Broadway show and the Empire State Building.
