NFMAA student wins Art in the Capitol Contest

By Staff | Nov 7, 2017

Makayla Uram, an eighth grade student from North Fort Myers Academy for the Arts, is the district winner of the Art in the Capitol Contest.

Makayla’s winning piece of artwork will be given to our state legislator, Rep. Dane Eagle, and he will deliver the piece to the Capitol building to be placed on display in Tallahassee during the next legislative session, beginning Jan. 9 through March 9, 2018.

All school districts in Florida were mandated by House Bill 701 to hold an “Art in the Capitol” contest for students in 6-8 grade. The Fine Arts Department announced the contest to our public schools including charter, private and virtual schools. The artwork was judged by local art teachers.
