The RING AWARDS Storytelling Contest, hosted by Ringling College of Art and Design, is a national competition intended to help students, grades 7-12, meet the challenge of communicating through a variety of media in this new century.
The theme of the contest was inspired by Sharon Robinson’s best selling book Under The Same Sun. Middle and high school students nationwide submitted their interpretation of what “Under the Same Sun” meant to them in the form of a photo, illustration, or video along with supporting text. The six grand prize winning students from AZ, FL, NJ, PA, TN, and TX will be honored at the awards ceremony.
Special guest Sharon Robinson, Scholastic Press author and daughter of baseball legend Jackie Robinson, along with Ringling College of Art and Design president, Dr. Larry Thompson, will present the Ring Awards to the 2014 national student winners.
