The results of this year's competition have been released and several AAHS students were recognized at the regional level, which includes several counties from New York and Pennsylvania.
The program is very competitive. Art teachers from our region send their best student work to be judged at the Arnot Art Museum. From over 900 entries, they choose the best 120 works. Panelists look for works that best exemplify originality, technical skill and the emergence of a personal voice or vision.
