Northeastern Back on Top as Art Contest Champs

The winner of the 2019 Annual Interscholastic Holiday Mural Art Competition was announced Sunday, December 15 at Miller Plant Farm in York, PA. Northeastern came out on top and reclaimed their first place slot. Northeastern is no stranger to being on top as they also won the competition in 2016 and 2017. 

The Art Competition, in its 6th year, had 5 local high schools participate: Dallastown, Northeastern, Spring Grove, York High, and York Suburban. All neighboring school districts were invited to participate in this festive contest showcasing local talent. Miller Plant Farm provided the canvases to the art departments this Fall and they were returned to the Farm and hung in the garden center prior to Thanksgiving. The murals adorned the walls for holiday shoppers throughout the Season. Votes were just 50¢ each, and you could vote unlimited times.

With a total of 326 overall ballots cast this year, $163 was raised by voters for the winning high school. Miller Plant Farm matched the total raised and will present Northeastern’s art department with a check for $326. In addition to the winning school, Miller Plant Farm will make a donation to each participating school's art department. 

Miller Plant Farm looks to continue the Annual Interscholastic Holiday Mural Art Competition next year and hopes to increase the number of involved high schools.
