This exhibit features the finalists from Fairfax County High School students who competed to win Arts Herndon scholarships in the categories of Digital Photography, Digital Art, Animation, and Other Digital Art (including gaming).
Each year Arts Herndon holds the Technology Arts Competition with a mission to promote students’ artistic expression through technologically based media, to encourage students to develop their artistic skills, to showcase student talent developed through school curriculum, and to encourage students to become skilled, creative thinkers entering the job market. The first competition was held in 2005, with support from the Fairfax County Public School system to develop competition guidelines and categories.
Entries in the competition were evaluated and judged by a panel of experts.
