Thien Bui, a 10th grader at Greenway High School in Glendale Union High School District, won the grand prize in Arizona Department of Education’s Everyday Art of Arizona student visual arts competition with this artwork.

“Student artwork in the halls of our offices helps remind us at the Department of Education that students are the reason we come to work every day,” Huppenthal said. “These beautiful works inspire us to do our best for our Arizona students and their schools, and reminds us of what an asset every child is for Arizona.”

The Everyday Art of Arizona competition is a celebration of art and artistry found throughout Arizona.

Students were asked to identify art in the world around them – from the design of a flip flop to the soaring red rocks of Sedona.

Students were invited to celebrate the everyday art found in their Arizona community with their artwork entry.
