Elizabeth Heyden and Marlie Smith, both juniors at South Effingham High School, recently participated in the Savannah College of Art and Design’s “SCAD Challenge,” an international 2-D and 3-D art competition for high school juniors and seniors.

SCAD uses the competition to seek out the next generation of talented artists and designers, while giving high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to compete to showcase their work and become eligible for scholarships.

For her 3-D sculpture, Heyden earned a First Place Platinum Award and a scholarship to two of SCAD’s summer art programs. The 3-D sculpture competition required students to create a tree using only wood and metal.

Both girls’ entries are featured in a printed booklet that showcases artwork submitted from as far away as Quito, Ecuador. A photo of Heyden’s sculpture stands alone on the page introducing the concept for the 3-D Challenge. Smith’s 2-D chalk drawing also stands alone on the page introducing the 2-D Challenge section of the booklet.
