The Escondido Art Association’s 2020 Art Scholarship Program for graduating seniors in any of the Escondido-based high schools is nearing conclusion, with presentations having been made by President Byron Marler at many of the Escondido high schools during January.
Once again, the $1,000 scholarship is being made available through the generous sponsorship of Design Moe Kitchen & Bath, Escondido. Prize money will be awarded in five categories this year: $500 for First Place; $250 for Second Place; $150 for Third Place; and 2 Honorable Mention awards of $50 each.
Students are judged on their submissions of three pieces of artwork, an essay about their interest in art, and a letter of recommendation from their guidance counselor or art teacher.
All Escondido high school seniors gifted in the arts who will be graduating this year are invited to participate and should visit the EAA website, www.escondidoartassociation.com, for complete information.
All entries are to be submitted to the Artists Gallery at 121 W. Grand Avenue in Escondido by Saturday, February 29 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. or Monday, March 2, from 4– 6 p.m. A Reception and Awards Ceremony will take place at the Artists Gallery on Saturday, March 14 from 5 to 8 p.m., with awards being presented at 6 p.m. Winners must be present to receive their awards.
