New Canaan teenager Ann Pakhayev won first place in the youth category at Silvermine Art Center's 25th annual Student Show for her mixed media work, "Approaching." But this is not the 13-year-old Pakhayev's first win at Silvermine. She also won at the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th student shows at the art center.

It has been a good year for the young artist, who is part of the Challenges in Art program at Saxe Middle School for gifted visual artists. She won a $500 scholarship from the educational travel company, ACIS.
