Student Art Contest

One of the highlights at the Annual Fairhope Arts & Crafts Festival is the amazing art created by the area Middle and High School Art Departments. The art students at local schools compete for a $750 prize for the best art panel representing the festival theme. The art is featured Friday night at the Artist Dinner where artists will judge and select the top 3.

The award money, which is donated by Segers Aerospace, will go to help fund the schools' art programs. Keith Parden of Fairhope's Ace Jubilee Hardware store has sponsored the materials to make the mural boards which are made by Fairhope Middle School's art teacher Shawn Johnson.

Throughout the year the Murals are put on display in public locations for everybody to enjoy.
