Congratulations Mid-South Scholastic Art Award Winners 2017!

Congratulations to the Scholastic Art Award winners from the Bridge Homeschool Art classes.  The Mid-South Scholastic Art Awards honors exemplary art by students in 7th through 12th grades, recognizing their outstanding achievements in a competitive annual exhibition and providing cash prizes and scholarship opportunities. The Mid-South Scholastic Art Awards is generously sponsored by the Brooks Museum League, which provides both financial support and countless volunteer hours.

The Mid-South Scholastic Art Awards began in 1965 as the Junior Mid-South Exhibition. Since 1989, the Brooks has been proud to partner with the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, a national non-profit organization, to host the regional competition and exhibition for Memphis and the Mid-South area. This year more than 3,000 entries in a wide variety of categories, including painting, drawing, mixed media, photography, sculpture, graphic design, film, fashion, as well as senior art portfolios were judged by a panel of judges over a course of several days. Judging for the competition takes place digitally, through a blind adjudication process involving a panel of regional artists, art educators, and other arts professionals. Regional winners are eligible for scholarships and cash prizes, are part of the exhibition at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, are invited to participate in an awards ceremony at the museum, and have their work sent to New York City for national judging.

This was the largest amount of art submitted to the scholastic art awards in this region ever!  I am very proud of your child’s recognition in this years juried show.

This year’s Mid-South Scholastic Art Awards show will open January 28th and be up through February 26th.  With such a large participation across Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi, the Gold Key winners will have their work hanging in the museum gallery and the honorable mention and Silver Key winners will have their work displayed digitally on screen as part of the show.  All award winners will be honored at the Mid-South Scholastic Art Award ceremony will be held on February 18th at the Brooks Museum of Art.  

Please join me in congratulating and celebrating the following students.
