Three talented students are recipients of scholarships from Quota International of Narooma.
Stephanie Taylor has won the Fine and Applied Arts Scholarship, which is awarded to a student whose Year 12 studies will involve music, drama, art, design, wood, metal or textiles. The $750 award is used to fund their major works.
Stephanie was chosen from a field of seven applicants, who met with judges in late November. She is undertaking two projects next year: the first is an ambitious art installation that involves intricate body painting of a model, recorded with time-lapse photography and still photos. She is also doing a major work in drama.
The judges were impressed with the complexity of her projects and her passion for her art.
Due to the amazing talent displayed this year, Quotarians opted to fund a second Fine and Applied Arts award of $300. It was presented to Connor Breust to encourage his studies in Woodwork and Photography. He will be building a timber bed frame with resin bedhead and side tables and undertaking a second major work in photography.
The winner of the Food Technology and Hospitality Scholarship is Ryan Shaw. He received $200 to help fund costs of his studies. An additional $100 will be presented at the end of Term 1 next year.
