STMA again received the most awards in the state of Minnesota! BUT, this year is extra special because STMA students Morgan S., Claire F. and Hannah M. received American Vision Nominations! There are only five American Vision nominations awarded in the state of Minnesota, from across all categories and grades. They are selected from those earning Gold Keys as the “Best-of-Show” for each regional program and will go on to the national awards competition as nominees for the American Vision. There were almost 4000 entries for the Scholastic program from across the state and to have 3 of the 5 nominees from our school is a major accomplishment!
You might wonder what are the Minnesota Scholastic Art Awards? The Minnesota Scholastic Art Awards program (MSAA) is a statewide regional affiliation of the national Scholastic Art Awards program. The MSAA offers early recognition of creative teenagers and scholarship opportunities for graduating high school seniors.
This program is open to all Minnesota students in grades 7-12. Student entries can be submitted by teachers and individual students. The MSAA winners are celebrated with an exhibition and ceremony hosted by the Art Educators of Minnesota (AEM) and the University of Minnesota Art Department and the Weisman Art Museum.
