Three scholarships were awarded to area youth for their winning artwork submitted to the Mooresville Arts 16th annual youth art show competition.

Open to all students in grades K-12, there were 114 entries submitted in this year’s event.

Scholarship winners were Isabella Hamby, a student at Statesville Christian Academy, and Ella Napiervowski, who is a student at the Community School of Davidson.

Hamby earned both the first place $500 scholarship sponsored by PeopleSuite Talent Solutions, and the third place $100 scholarship, sponsored by Rocky Mt. Music Co., for her charcoal, graphite and acrylic work “True Hope Out of Chaos.”

Napiervowski was awarded the second place $250 scholarship sponsored by Mooresville Arts for her acrylic work “Watching.”

The annual show was held in March; however due to COVID-19, the reception for the March show was canceled followed by the gallery closing.
