Congratulations to Emily Aucompaugh and Emily McGowty, who were selected as winners in the region round of the 2015-16 eSchoolData Login Page Art Contest!

Emily Aucompaugh's "Beautiful Science" tied for first place. Emily McGowty's "It’s All in the Mix" received an Honorable Mention.

Contestants are required to submit works of art that focus on a specific theme relative to current educational topics. This year’s theme is Art in STEM, and challenges students to illustrate how Art is integral to the STEM subjects: how the principles and aesthetics of Art are incorporated into and reflected in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.

Emily’s first place entry “Beautiful Science” will appear as the background image on the eSchoolData login page  and the eSD Parent Portal and Student Portal login pages, with the release of version 4.8 in January 2016.

eSD created the art contest as a unique way to give back to school districts and the surrounding community, by promoting local art and providing monetary awards for the winning entries. It also helps students build up their art portfolio, and allows the winners to claim publishing credit for their work when applying to art schools after graduation.
