ABOUT THE COmpetition
The Regional High School Art Exhibition is an invitational exhibition, with over 75 schools from Northwest Missouri and Northeast Kansas asked to participate. This year, teachers from 23 schools in NW Missouri and NE Kansas entered more than 140 works of art. Each teacher was limited to five student entries.
Artworks are divided into nine categories based on media and/or technique. After a panel jury selection, first, second and third places, plus honorable mentions, are awarded in each category. Winners were announced at an awards ceremony on Sunday, Feb. 18, followed by a reception for the artists, their family and instructors.
