Art in the Capitol is a statewide visual arts competition for Florida students in grades 6 through 8. The annual contest requires each school district to hold an art competition for all students in grades 6 through 8 attending public schools, private schools, and home schools in Florida. The artwork is judged by a selection committee of artists or teachers whose students have not submitted work for the competition. The winning piece representing our school district is displayed in the Florida State Capitol building in Tallahassee during the 2024 legislative session. Congratulations to our selected student artist, 7th grader Olivia Rieder, and her teacher, Ms. Amy Banton, from Murray Middle School.
