Rochester — Two students from the graphic arts department at Old Colony Regional Vocational Technical High School were among winners of the Cool Science Art Competition sponsored by UMass Lowell and UMass Boston.
Melissa Peets, a junior in graphic arts from Acushnet, whose artwork will be put on display on the outside of a bus in the Lowell transit system during the month of June. She also received a $100 gift certificate.
The honorable mention winner is Aimee Hill, a junior in graphic arts from Mattapoisett, whose artwork will be put on display in May.
The students were honored at the second annual Cool Science Awards Ceremony and Reception on April 4 in Lowell.
Cool Science is a statewide K-12 student art competition designed to foster learning about climate change. The students were asked to create artwork depicting climate change, which in turn will help educate the public through the Massachusetts transit system.
Cool Science received more than 400 works of art from schools in the state. Additional information on Cool Science may be found at www.coolscience.net.
