Patapsco High School and Center for the Arts senior Safiya Brown will graduate in June, but she will continue to have a visible presence in Baltimore County Public Schools all next school year.
The art student designed a poster and entered it in Baltimore County's magnet school poster competition. Her entry was selected as the countywide winner, which means her artwork will be featured in next year's magnet publications, according to a statement from the school.
Brown also advances to the national magnet school poster contest, which is sponsored by Magnet Schools of America.
The national winner receives a cash prize and has his or her artwork reproduced in national publications produced by the magnet school association.
The big winner will be announced at the organization's conference in Tulsa, OK, in May.
Patapsco senior Caleb Harrison's entry in the county's contest was recognized with an honorable mention.
