A regional awards ceremony for students and their families will take place on Saturday, Jan. 25, in the Kent State Stark Conference Center. 

“Kent State University at Stark is proud to again host this incredible event,” said Jack McWhorter, Ph.D., professor of art and regional affiliate coordinator of the Northeast Central Ohio Scholastic Art Exhibit and Awards Ceremony. “The best way to characterize this competition is it truly sets the standard for work at the middle school and high school levels.”

The Stark Campus is one of 90 regional partners that sponsor the local awards program. Middle and high school art and photography students will receive Silver and Gold Key awards for their efforts. Several special awards, including the American Vision awards, also will be presented.

The artwork of Gold Key winners, American Vision and portfolio recipients will be forwarded to the national level in New York City. Winners will be announced at the National Student Art Exhibition of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards in June. Students will be notified if their work has been selected.

The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards are the largest, longest-running and most prestigious recognition program for creative young people in the United States.
