WNC Regional Scholastic Art Awards

The Museum, with the assistance of its volunteer educators and support from the Asheville Area Section of the American Institute of Architects, is proud to be a regional affiliate partner sponsoring the WNC Regional Scholastic Art Awards each year. Students in grades 7–12 from all across Western North Carolina are invited to submit work for this special juried competition. The Museum works with the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers to facilitate regional judging of student artwork and to recognize our community’s burgeoning artistic talent. Participating counties include Ashe, Avery, Buncombe and Asheville City, Burke, Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Haywood, Henderson, Jackson, McDowell, Macon, Madison, Mitchell, Polk, Rutherford, Swain, Transylvania, Watauga, and Yancey.

In early spring each year, award winners are featured in an exhibition at the Museum and are honored at a ceremony. Regional Gold Key recipients’ work is sent to the national Scholastic Art & Writing Awards competition hosted by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers.
