Students took part in the annual Globeducate Virtual Arts Competition in November, with the theme this year of “Connections” From ages 5 to 18, nearly 200 students in 39 schools jumped on the opportunity to showcase and explore their talents in painting, sculpture, poetry, drawing, 3D art, painting, photography and creative writing.
 
Participating schools held internal art exhibitions and allowed artists to be peer evaluated or juried by the school community before final entries were chosen for the global competition.
