Art in the Capitol Competition

Florida Senator Travis Hutson visited R. J. Murray Middle School on May 20th to honor student artist Olivia Rieder. Olivia’s artwork won the 2023-2024 Art in the Capitol Competition for St. Johns County School District and was on display at the Florida State Capitol during the 2024 legislative session.

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.
