Homer artists are finalists in 'Power of Youth' contest

Two Homer students are finalists in F Magazine's "Power of Youth" statewide student art and writing competition. Homer High School student Molly Mitchell is a finalist in both the writing and art categories and Homer Middle School student Audrey Russell is a finalist in the writing category.

A celebration for the contest is 5:30 p.m. March 16 at Out North Theatre in Anchorage. Artwork of finalists is hung at the gallery, and the top winning writing works will be interpreted or read aloud by professional actors and readers.

Hundreds of Alaska students in grades 7 through 12 entered the contest. Winning students also will be featured in F Magazine, and the winners in each category receive a full scholarship and airfare to attend the Sitka Fine Arts Summer Camp. The gallery exhibit opens March 15.
