The Visual Art Achievement Awards is a competition sponsored by the Alabama State Council on the Arts and administered each February on the local level by various groups such as The Arts Council. The exhibit consists of the winners, judge’s choice awards and honorable mentions awarded to students from local schools with works divided into two groups based on grade level. Group I consists of middle school students in grades six through eight. Group II consists of high school students in grades nine through twelve. Entries are classified based on medium: drawing, painting, mixed-media, 3-D, print making, computer design, and photography. The winners and judge’s choice winners are featured in Montgomery at the state level/competition exhibit with subsequent winners traveling to Washington, D.C. for the national level competition. Local teachers should contact Sharron Rudowski for further information about the competition. Information is also available at arts.alabama.gov.
