Amity Regional High School Recipients of Connecticut Regional Scholastic Art Awards

The Connecticut Regional Scholastic Art Awards Program is a non-profit, all volunteer activity which is sponsored by the Connecticut Art Education Association.  The Connecticut Regional Scholastic Awards program is a high quality level, professionally juried event which recognizes only the best Connecticut student art work.  All Connecticut art students in public, parochial, and private schools are encouraged to participate and submit high quality art work.  Student artwork is juried by professional artists and university art faculty and is selected on merit for inclusion in a state-wide art exhibition held at the Hartford Art School.  Beyond the honor of being selected for this high quality exhibit, students may be awarded Gold or Silver keys and Honorable Mention Awards in each of 17 media categories.  For additional Information about the CT Regional Scholastic Art Awards and The Connecticut Art Education Association, please go to
