Augusta — Twenty Maine student artists will have an audience of more than 70,000 students and educators for their artwork starting this fall. Included are two students from the Midcoast.

More than 200 students submitted images to be considered for the Maine Department of Education, Maine Learning Technology Initiative Screensaver Challenge. An annual tradition of the Maine DOE, students in grades K-12 can submit artwork at the beginning of the year to be selected for display. The images are scored and selected by an independent panel of three judges.

The winning student artists will have their work showcased on MLTI devices for the 2017-18 school year. In addition, the student artists will have their registration fees waived for the 2017 MLTI Student Conference; and their winning pieces will be printed and displayed at the Department of Education’s Augusta offices from June 1 through Aug. 31.

The local students whose work was selected are Camden Hills Regional High School junior Megan Gordon and Oceanside Middle School eighth grader Erin Corcoran. For more information about the Maine Learning Technology Initiative Screen Saver challenge, visit maine.gov/doe/mlti/student/artchallenge.
