As the school year drew to a close, the Wilton Woman\u2019s Club awarded scholarships to six young women at Wilton High School.The awards were created to honor two important and well-respected members of the club \u2014 Julia Robb and Elizabeth Sternad. Julia Robb Memorial\u00a0Art Scholarship At the Fine and Performing Arts Awards ceremony on May 20, the Julia Robb Memorial Art Scholarship was presented by the late club member\u2019s close friend Karen Tartell. Robb was a dedicated member of the club during the 1990s, before her untimely death at age 52. She had a special passion for the arts, and was the driving force behind the highly successful Autumn Craft Festival, which was the major fund-raising event for the Wilton Woman\u2019s Club for many years. This scholarship was established to remember Robb and to inspire young artists in Wilton to pursue their passions for artistic endeavors. The winners of the Julia Robb Memorial Art Scholarship were selected by a committee that judged the students\u2019 art portfolios, looking for a level of mastery in any medium chosen by the student \u2014 whether in painting, drawing, photography or pottery. This year\u2019s first place winner was Corrine Cannavino for her unorthodox collages that demonstrated excellence in composition and drawing technique. Corrine plans to attend Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass., this fall. This year\u2019s second-place winner was Maya Borrero, for her refreshing theme and use of everyday mid-century items in making well-designed works. Maya plans to attend the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Ga. next year. Elizabeth Sternad\u00a0Scholarship The Elizabeth Sternad Scholarship \u2014 named in honor of the founder of the club, Betty Sternad \u2014 was given \u00a0 during the Academic and Community Awards ceremony on May 28.
