The NAHS, known as the National Art Honor Society, has had a pretty productive year with their various projects throughout the years of 2016 to 2017.


“I think going to Art Prize was the greatest thing about NAHS this year,” junior NAHS student Jeanelle Courtnay.


The Art Prize is an open independently organized international art competition and festival held annually in Grand Rapids, Michigan where artists participate in more than  More than five hundred thousand dollars in prizes are awarded each year, which includes a $200,000 prize awarded entirely by public vote and another $200,000 prize awarded by a jury of art experts.


“The Art Prize visit was actually really enjoyable,” another junior NAHS student Aniston Niederquell, “I liked being able to walk around and look at extraordinary exhibits for a while with my friends in NAHS.”


The artists in NAHS had a productive year of venturing out, and discovering varieties of artwork as they work on projects themselves such as painting town, drawing portraits for orphaned children, and redesigning Van shoes with their own creative artwork.  



About The Author


I’m a sixteen-year-old junior at Ovid-Elsie High School. My main goal after high school is to attend college to achieve a Bachelor’s degree in English and a Master’s degree in Journalism. For my top three career choices, I would love to become a qualifying journalist, or a best selling novelist, or possibly a cover designer for a Fortune 500 company. I have enjoyed writing I since was about eight-years-old. I’ve written many of my own material that involved many different genres. As a passionate writer, I enjoy anything that has to do with science fiction, mysteries, horror, fantasy and history. I also enjoy varieties of music, books, and movies. I enjoy doing projects with computer design and editing. I also edit my own material for entertainment when I have the time. For example, book covers, websites, photography, and novels. I really hope to look back at my high school years and remember that pursuing my goal was the right thing to do.
