The Art Society of Old Greenwich (ASOG) presented its 2016 Scholarship Awards to three Greenwich High School students for their outstanding artwork in charcoal, photography and ceramics. The presentations were made on April 9 at the ASOG Spring Art Show reception, which took place at the Garden Education Center. The ASOG also presented 2016 Spring Show awards to ASOG member artists.

Monica Stevenson received the $500 Grand Prize Scholarship Award for her charcoal portrait. The $250 Runner-Up (second place) Scholarship awards went to Estella Perrone for her photography and to Andreas Zervos for his ceramics. Jurors for the Scholarship Awards were artists Carol Nipomnich Dixon, Frank Smurlo, Jr. and Libby Collins.
