Congratulations to Joey Prendergast, class of 2015 for his outstanding poster that won the poster contest sponsored by the Middlesex District Attorney's Office and the Middlesex Youth Partnership, Inc.
Joey's poster was selected from over 90 entries. He was honored today for his outstanding artwork that he created. District Attorney Gerry Leone spoke to students, families, and educators about the impact that other students can have on each other and how important it is to "speak up" and prevent violence.
Art is a powerful tool to communicate a message and motivate others. Joey was able to just that with his artwork.
Thanks to the Middlesex District Attorney's Office for creating and opportunity for students to express themselves and use art to deliver a positive message.

Burlington High School Annual Art Exhibition
The opening reception for Burlington High School's 40th Annual Art Exhibition: What's Over the Hill? will be held on Thursday, March 21, from 6:30 until 8:30 pm, which is also the night of the high school's Open House. Hundreds of pieces of work from all art classes will be on display in the high school library and main lobby. The show will be up until the second week of April, but this is the only night that the exhibition will be open to the general public.
Also that night, the Fashion Design class will be hosting its first Fashion Show in the lower library.
Cambridge Street Gallery, across from the school's cafeteria, will also be open that night. On display will be the middle school's Honorable Mention Award winners from this year's Scholastic Art Awards (The Gold Key and Silver Key winners of both the high school and middle school are still on display in Boston's Transportation Building.).
Christina Chang teaches art and design to students in grades 9-12.
