The region, northwest Indiana and lower southwest Michigan, had over 3,200 entries submitted to the Scholastic Art Awards this year by area art teachers. Triton was fortunate to get three pieces in, two with top honors that will go on to compete at the national level in New York City this summer. The student’s work will be exhibited at the South Bend Museum of Art Feb. 3 through March 11 with an awards ceremony on at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 5 in the Bendix Theater in the Century Center.
Today, The Scholastic Art Awards represents the most comprehensive national annual assessment of the creative spirit among American teens. Three core values have not changed since The Awards inception: freedom of expression, a blind adjudication process, and work criteria based on originality, technical proficiency, and emergence of personal voice.
