By Kai Fleming, Reporter

Seven students participated and entered pieces in the York Community Arts Scholars Exhibition (YCASE).

These students had their work evaluated by professional jurors and were selected into the Finalist exhibition where they all can apply for a $20,000 scholarship to York College, according to Electronic Arts teacher Wade Bowers.

Susquehannock entered about 13 of the 100 pieces of work in the Finalist exhibition.

This year, seven students made it to the finals: seniors Keely Coyle, Mitch Brown, DJ Rohrbaugh, Max Minear, Anna Joy, Randee Semler, Ian Achterberg and Holly Mullaney, and junior Sam Timlin.

“I would definitely recommend this to anybody who’s really into art (because) it gives an opportunity to artists in the high school to gain confidence and see that they are better than they think,” said Coyle.

Timlin views YCASE as a fair competition.

“It’s a good competition because it’s not… worldwide or… countrywide, it’s just York County. So it gives kids a chance,” said Timlin.
