Two high-school seniors, Jordan Rhodes of Auburn, Ala., and Courtney Remillard of Villa Rica, Ga., earned tuition scholarships in the local level of The Art Institutes and Americans for the Arts “You Can Create Tomorrow” Poster Design Competition.
Rhodes placed first in the high-school senior category of the competition, earning a $3,000 tuition scholarship to attend The Art Institute of Atlanta. Remillard, who placed second in the high-school senior category, earned a $1,000 tuition scholarship toward her education at The Art Institute of Atlanta.
As the first-place winner in the highschool senior category, Rhodes’ design has been entered into the national stage of the competition, in which she will compete against other local winners from across North America for up to a full-tuition scholarship to The Art Institute of Atlanta.
The competition was open to graduating seniors and high-school graduates interested in pursuing a creative education. Students submitted an original poster design, a current transcript and a designer statement. A panel of industry professionals selected by The Art Institutes schools assessed each local winner’s poster design based on the specified criteria by visiting the posters and designers’ statements on The Art Institutes website.
