Announcing the “2022-2023 Art in the Capitol Exhibition!” In 2016 the Florida Legislature passed and Governor Rick Scott signed House Bill 701 related to “Art in the Capitol” competition.

The exhibition is open to all Broward County Public, Private and home-schooled students. The Best of Show awarded artwork will be submitted to the legislator in the student’s residential region and then transported to Tallahassee to hang in the Capitol Building. Congratulations to "Best of Show"-Libby A. from Somerset Preparatory Academy Middle School; "1st Place"-Tsz L. from Falcon Cove Middle School, "Second Place"- Kylie L. from Lyons Creek Middle School; "3rd Place"- Tyler D. from Franklin Academy K-8.
