Regional High School Art Show
Since 1973, NEWESD 101 has sponsored a regional art show for high school students in its seven-county service area. The NEWESD 101 event is tied to a larger OSPI show matching regional winners in an annual statewide competition in Olympia.
The show invites entries across a diverse spectrum of media including, but not limited to, acrylics, charcoal, clay, fabrics, graphite, paper mache, pastels and photography. Entries are judged by an independent panel of professional artists.
Student work is showcased in a month-long public display at NEWESD 101 each spring. Winning artists are recognized at an annual reception hosted by NEWESD 101.
Even during the other 11 months of the year, the Art Show maintains high visibility. Through the years, NEWESD 101 has acquired a permanent collection, now approaching 40 pieces, that includes Board, Superintendent and Staff Choice awards since the early 1990s. See collection
