The West Virginia Department of Education selected Caroline Bantug, a senior from Tyler Consolidated High School in Tyler County, as winner of the 2014 Science in the Arts competition, part of the WVDE's 2014 Arts Alive celebration.

The Science in the Arts competition has been created to encourage high school students to consider, research and present information about relationships between the two seemingly different subjects.

"We know that students learn best when they are able to connect different subjects and integrate their learning," said state superintendent of schools Jim Phares. "Well-taught arts courses are where creativity, flexibility, innovation, understanding and empathy are consistently required. These are skills that are transferable to many other disciplines."

Arts Alive is scheduled to take place at Friday, April 4, 2014, at the Clay Center in Charleston. The lobby showcase will open at 6:15 p.m. with main stage events beginning at 7 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public. Tickets will be available from the Clay Center box office. Please call 304-561-3570.
