Opportunity: Call for student artists -- STUDENT ARTIST OF THE YEAR

Justin with ArtLA in Santa Monica, CA emailed me and asked to spread the word. Seniors, this would especially be a great opportunity for you!! He wrote..."The main prizes for the winning student are $10,000 in cash and a show at a major gallery here in Santa Monica, CA. Your students only need to register for the contest and upload an image of their best work in order to compete. The winning artist will receive the following:
-$10,000 in cash
-Apple MacBook Pro
-Adobe Creative Suite 5.5
-Epson Stylus R2000
-A $500 Blick Art gift certificate
-A complimentary Presidential Package on ArtLA.com
-An exhibit at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica, CA
The contest ends on April 10th, and the top 3 contestants with the most votes will have their work moved to the semi-final, where a panel of judges will pick the winner. Our contest is open to both U.S. and international students, so all are welcome to enter."
