GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - A high school senior has won the online youth competition for the annual ArtPrize contest in Grand Rapids.

The Grand Rapids Press reports (https://bit.ly/1w7oCGn ) a black-and-white photograph by West Ottawa High School student Michele Weber was selected out of 89 entries for the ArtStart contest grand prize.

ArtPrize education director Angela De Luca Placencia says the competition for youth under age 18 received submissions from 3-year-olds to 12th graders. She says the entries were “really strong” in all grade levels.

The contest started last year to allow youth to participate in the 19-day international art competition that ended Oct. 12. Weber’s prizes include a mentoring opportunity with a professional photographer, an ArtPrize book and various gift cards.
