Once again, the $1,000 scholarship is being made available through the sponsorship of Design Moe Kitchen & Bath, Escondido. Prize money will be awarded as follows: $500 for First Place; $250 for Second Place; $150 for Third Place, and 2 Honorable Mention Awards for $50 each. Students are judged on their submissions of three pieces of artwork (one original), an essay about their interest in art, and a letter of recommendation from their guidance counselor or art teacher.
A Reception and Awards Ceremony at the Artists Gallery is still to be determined based on Covid 19 restrictions in place during the month of March. All artwork must be picked up by Saturday, April 3, from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
