Congratulations to Walnut Hills High School senior Anne Knellinger and School for Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA) senior Frances Timberlake for winning 2018 Overture Awards recognizing excellence in arts among area high school students. Presented by the Cincinnati Arts Association, it is the largest solo arts competition in the tristate.
Anne was the winner in the Visual Arts category, and Frances won for Creative Writing.
Anne began pursuing her artistic interests at a very young age, and started taking Advanced Placement art courses in 10th grade. She has won Gold Keys in the National Scholastic competition. She enjoys volunteering, running cross country and playing ultimate frisbee with her friends. She plans to pursue a career in design.
For Frances writing became an outgrowth of her low for theater and storytelling. Most recently, Frances was named a National YoungArts finalist and nominated as a U.S. Presidential Scholar of the Arts, in addition to earning recognition through the National Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.
Both students were awarded $4,000. Congratulations on a job well done!
