Hartsville, SC -

HARTSVILLE, SC (WMBF) - Student artists and their teachers across Darlington County were recognized for their work at the annual "Art in Business Youth Art Show" on Sunday, March 21, at Hartsville Middle School.

The Art in Business Program, held by the Darlington County School District, recognized 22 student winners and showcased hundreds of pieces for student artwork.

Officials from 22 of the district's schools each selected one student's art to represent the school in the district-wide competition. Local businesses sponsored each school winner, making it possible to professionally frame the art and provide each winner with a $100 savings bond.

The art will hang in the sponsoring business for a year before returning to the student's home school to be displayed permanently.

This year's school winners are:

  • Brockington Elementary Magnet School – Katlyn Travers
  • Brunson-Dargan Elementary School – Tryiuna Mayze
