ELMHURST – The Elmhurst Artists' Guild (EAG) awarded two York High School seniors $500 scholarships.

EAG artists Adrienne Jaroscak and Nick Sgariato chose scholarship winners Andrew Viverito and Olivia Olsen based on their artwork. Inspired by a photo he found online, Viverito used watercolors to depict wolves. Olsen juxtaposed a bride and groom with birds in graphite based on the phrase, "lovebirds."

Olsen plans to continue studying art at Columbia College next year, but Viverito wants to pursue electrical engineering in college and continue art as a hobby or minor.
