Community Reception: Friday, April 18th: 6:30-8 p.m. Art Scholarship Alert is a juried art exhibition and scholarship competition for grades 9 through 12. The program is designed to give recognition and financial assistance for outstanding art students, to encourage artistic growth and to provide students with an opportunity to participate as artists in a professional setting. Students are required to submit a portfolio of works of art to be juried by a team of professional artists and educators. Young artists learn commitment to a goal and gain self-confidence as they aspire to artistic excellence. Their successes establish them as significant role models for younger students. Since 1984, Art Scholarship Alert has awarded over $102,700 to young artists to help further their creative endeavors. In addition to the portfolio competition, students at the senior level may apply for the annual $1,000 Sara Jane Venable Scholarship. Art Scholarship Alert offers entry to students in over 50 school districts in 9 counties: Ingham, Clinton, Eaton, Ionia, Shiawassee, Barry, Livingston, Calhoun and Jackson.
