Western North Carolina Regional Scholastic Art Awards Ceremony

Join talented WNC student artists for a ceremony honoring their award-winning work!
The Asheville Art Museum and the Asheville Area Section of the American Institute of Architects are the Western North Carolina Regional Affiliates of the Scholastic Art Awards. This ongoing community partnership has supported the creative talents of our region’s youth for 35 years. The Western North Carolina Regional program is open to students in grades 7-12 across 20 counties. The regional program is judged in two groups: Group I, grades 7-8 and Group II, grades 9-12. We received nearly 800 entries from students across our region. The 2015 Regional Judges are: Bill Byers, Carol Bomer and Court McCracken. The judges carefully viewed each entry then selected Gold Key, Silver Key and Honorable Mention award recipients in a variety of media. Out of all the entries, 123 works have been recognized by the judges and are featured in this exhibition. Those works receiving Gold Key Awards will be sent to compete in the 92nd Annual National Scholastic Art Awards Program in New York City.
