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 annual NEWESD 101 event is tied to a larger OSPI show in which regional winners advance to a statewide competition in Olympia.
The show invites entries across a diverse array 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 and winning artists are recognized at an annual awards reception.
Even during the other 11 months of the year, the Art Show maintains high visibility. Through the years, NEWESD 101 has compiled a permanent collection of student art for display in its offices and conference center. The collection, totaling more than 30 pieces, includes Superintendent and Staff Choice awards since the early 1990s.
