Maine Learning Technology Initiative (MLTI) Screensaver Challenge

Twenty student artists will have an audience of more than 70,000 students and educators for their artwork starting this fall.

More than 125 Maine students submitted images to be considered for the Maine Learning Technology Initiative (MLTI) Screensaver Challenge. An independent panel of three judges used a rubric to score each image and select the winners.

The selected student artists will have their work showcased on MLTI devices for the 2016 -17 school year. They will also have their registration fees waived for the 2016 MLTI Student Conference and their winning pieces displayed at the Augusta offices of the Maine DOE from June 1 through August 31.

The selected students are listed below. Their artwork is available for viewing on the MLTI website at http://maine.gov/doe/mlti/student/artchallenge/index.html
