National Scholastic Art Show 2013
With a new year comes a new showcase of Hoover High School talented artists! For the past 15 years Hoover students have been recognized for their outstanding work at the Scholastic Regional Art Show, which begins soon at the Stark Campus of Kent State University.
The Scholastic Art Show is a nationally recognized display of student work in grades 7 - 12, representing a variety of media from traditional – such as painting and drawing – to more contemporary fashion design and digital entries.
Works selected with the top honor of a "gold key" are sent to New York City to be judged nationally. Locally over 4,000 works are entered each year, with approximately 200 being selected for the local display. The show will be held from Jan. 22-30 in the Student Center and Fine Arts Building at Kent State Stark.
We encourage students, staff, parents and community members to view these talented young people's work while they are on display during the month of January.
