Suncoast Partnership Brings Prestigious Award

suncoastArtFest Fort Myers recently received numerous Florida Festival & Events Association honors and was particularly proud to be recognized with a First Place Award for their successful sponsorship program with Suncoast Credit Union and the Art Under 20 high school art competition.

“When the arts are an active and vibrant part of a community, everyone benefits. Suncoast Credit Union is elated to know that ArtFest Fort Myers has been recognized as the jewel we believe it is, and that our members and the larger community get exposure to the arts in a way that might not happen without such an event,” said Greg Pasanen, Regional Vice President.

With the support of Suncoast Credit Union, the Art Under 20 exhibit and competition, which takes place over festival weekend, gives hundreds of talented high school students an opportunity to showcase their artwork to festival goers while competing for $8,000 in cash awards. Students artists from across our community exhibit in the categories of Digital, Drawing, Painting, Photography, 3-D and Mixed Media and student Entry Forms are available now for the 2017 competition.
