Learning Without Limits

National Visions Award
Empty Space
Congratulations to Reagan Carter receiving a Best of Show award at this year's Scholastic Art Competition in Wichita.

Seven Seaman High School students received 11 awards at this year's competition.

Scholastic Art is one of the oldest and most prestigious national art competitions for students. It provides an opportunity for student artists to be recognized, exhibited, and awarded scholarship(s). It is a huge honor for students to receive recognition based on the originality, technical skill and the emergence of a personal vision in their work. Reagan Carter's work was selected as one of the top five in the entire show that generally has 1000-2000 entries and will be automatically juried into the National Show in New York City.

Congratulations to all of Seaman's award winners this year! Silver and Gold key works will be on display at Mark Arts in Wichita, February 12 - March 27.
