Commercial Art Student Receives Honorable Mention in Art Contest

Sophie Munoz, a student in the Commercial Art Program and a senior at Scarsdale High School, was one of three students from the Hudson Valley region to receive an Honorable Mention in the fourth annual eSchoolData Login Page Art Contest.

Approximately 60 entries were received from students in schools throughout Rockland, Westchester and Putnam counties.

Separate contests were held in Suffolk and Nassau counties, as well as in western and northeastern New York.

This year’s contest challenged students to illustrate how the principals and esthetics of art are incorporated into and reflected in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).

The winners were chosen by the company’s Twitter and Facebook followers.

Sophie’s entry illustrated a mixture of line drawing that depicted the various fields of science, technology, engineering and math, explained Damian Powers, the commercial art instructor.

“Sophie worked very hard on her illustration, and it obviously shows,” he said. “Sophie is an extremely talented artist, designer and illustrator. I am incredibly proud to have had her in my class for the past two years. I will miss our design discussions when she graduates this June.”


eSchool Data, a student management system used by schools in New York State, Pennsylvania and Virginia, created the art contest as a unique way to give back to school districts and the surrounding community. It also adds to students’ art portfolios, allowing them to claim publishing credit for their work when applying to college art programs.
