PITTSFIELD,  Mass. — Mayor Daniel Bianchi presented awards to the top 10 vote-getters in the "Teen Ten" art program on Thursday.

The program, organized by Miss Hall's School, collected more than 100 entries of artwork from eight area high schools. The pieces were posted on online and viewers were able to vote which ones they liked.

The top 10 pieces will now be on display at City Hall in conjunction with the city's 10x10 Upstreet Art Festival.

The Teen Ten website received more than 15,000 views and more 1,300 votes.

This is the second year the competition has been held.

The show was organized by Miss Hall's seniors (and founders) Ky Hong Le, Emily Ren, Jeongmi Seo and Rossey Zhong, along with junior Sunny Jiang and assisted by studio art teacher Ellie Kreischer.

Thursday featured a reception at City Hall with Bianchi handing out the awards to the winners. The best showing was by Lenox High School, which captured five of the spots.
