In partnership with Sarson Funds, the Jack Shields ’79, P’06 Center for Innovation hosted its first technology series. The Blockchain, Cryptocurrency, and NFTs Series consisted of three programs led by Mr. Jahon Jamali ’99, Sarson Funds CMO, who founded Sarson Funds with classmate Mr. John Sarson ’99.
After hosting our students for a field trip earlier this year, Mr. Jamali returned to BC High to lead three sessions – Introduction to Blockchain, Cryptocurrency & Financial Inclusion, and NFTs. Following the final session on NFTs, we launched the NFT Art Contest with the Student Arts Council. Students submitted artwork with an innovation theme to compete for inclusion in BC High’s first NFT series.
The Student Arts Council developed contest guidelines, reviewed submissions, and named the winners. Notably, the students decided to donate the proceeds of the NFT series to an organization that supports the arts. Funds raised will be donated to Americans for the Arts.
To view and acquire one of BC High’s first NFTs, please visit our page on OpenSea. Both “Out of Tune” and “Jet Wash” will be auctioned off. We will provide a framed physical print for both as well. Ten editions of “Expectations” and 100 editions of “Save the World Cow” will be sold at a fixed price.
Pease reach out to [email protected] with any questions.
