After much anticipation, Keep Prince William Beautiful would like to recognize:

2016 Keep Prince William Beautiful $500 Scholarship Winner

“Wonders of PW”
Scholarship Winner

Isabelle, 11th Grade

“My artwork depicts the ubiquitous beauty of Prince William County’s natural surroundings: the flowers in blossom, the bursts of color as birds settle from tree to tree, water droplets catching the light as fish splash in the rivers. It is necessary to preserve these natural wonders by keeping the county clean and taking an active part in the community, so that all can enjoy PW’s beautiful environment for years to come.”

“Shading… intricacy… interpretation of beauty…” -A few comments from our judges 

We would also like to recognize our honorable mentions:

“This springtime scene depicts the natural beauty that Prince William County has to offer. I was inspired by some plants, animals, & landscapes that are native to this county! They include the Manassas Battlefield fence, low tree-covered mountains, a cherry blossom tree, and a cardinal. The natural beauty of this scene is a reminder to Keep Prince William County Beautiful!”
