2021 Courtney Hunt Scholarship Award Winner

Our 2021 Scholarship Award, a check for $1000, was presented to Kelly Ventura, a student at Oakleaf High School.

In 2002, the Art Guild established the Courtenay Hunt Scholarship which is an annual Art Scholarship presented to a Clay County High School Senior planning to pursue a career in the visual arts field or arts education. The Art Scholarship information is shared with all Clay County High Schools.   

The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic changed life for everyone, including the Art Guild. As a result the Courtney Hunt Scholarship was awarded to Clay county high school art teachers in the form of art supply gift certificates and complimentary memberships to the Art Guild.  

The 2022 Scholarship Amount is $1000 and a gift certificate will be given to the teacher of the winning student for classroom art supplies.
