The Minnesota Scholastics Art Competition is very highly regarded as an outstanding recognition and exhibition of excellent high school student art. Oftentimes, over 1000 entries are received from across the state.
Winona Area Public Schools is very proud of the recognition our students have received at this noted exhibit. Once again, our students have showed that WSHS is very strong in developing the talents of young artists. After a local jurying of art work entries, a number were sent on to the Minneapolis College of Art and Design for consideration.
Winona Area Public Schools is proud to announce that WSHS have earned honors in the 2005 Minnesota Scholastic Art Competition.
In the category of photography, Jennifer Smith and Annie Mahoney received Silver Awards. Their work will be on display at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design from January 22nd through February 13th.
Merit Awards went to Ashley Palubicki and Forrest Weinstock in the photography category. Courtney Mueller received a Merit Award in the printmaking category.
Congratulations to these students and to WSHS art teachers Barbara Walker, Ann Wistrcill, Karen Hazelton, and Jeff Morgan.
