Congratulations to our “I Love Northborough” $1000 Scholarship Art Contest

 

Congratulations to Megan Harrington, ARHS Class of 2021, the winner of our first annual “I Love Northborough” $1000 Scholarship contest! NEF will be creating 50 limited edition prints of the winning piece, which will be professionally matted and made available at the Applefest Gala for a $100 donation.

This will be an annual contest. Each year’s piece will be the same size and shape so you can start an “I Love Northborough” collection!

Thank you to Main Street Bank for the generous scholarship donation and Gastonart & Frame for donating the artwork matting.
