The League is pleased to announce the results of the national Student Art Competition for 2010–2011. We congratulate the winners and the colleges they represent. Under the leadership of Wanda Texon, Miami Dade College, the competition included 95 works of art submitted by students from the League’s 19 board colleges. A catalog of all entries is currently being produced by Miami Dade College and will be mailed to all League board members this fall. Awards and Certificates of National Merit have been prepared for the winners and all students who entered the national-level competition and are currently being forwarded to the League Representatives.

The jurors for this year’s Student Art Competition were as follows:

Edouard Duval-Carrié is a Haitian painter and sculptor. Duval-Carrié studied at the Université de Montréal and McGill University in Canada before graduating with a Bachelor of Arts from Loyola College, Montréal in 1978.

The League for Innovation would like to thank of the contributing colleges for their continued support and participation in this rewarding event for community college students. We are especially indebted to Wanda Texon, who took over the coordination of the competition mid stream, and to Miami Dade for its outstanding support of the 25th annual Student Art Competition. It was extremely well run, and will no doubt be beautifully documented by Wanda and her group.
