Area art teachers selected the works of art to enter in the 2016 competition, choosing their students’ most ambitious efforts.  This year, 957 examples from 21 schools were submitted to a panel of three jurors.  After careful examination, the judges selected 378 works for inclusion in the exhibition.   

Every work of art selected for exhibition receives an award.  Silver Key and Gold Key Award recipients are identified by a sticker on the label.  This year, 69 artworks and 3 portfolios were selected for Silver Key Awards and 93 artworks and 5 portfolios were presented with Gold Key Awards.   

The exhibition’s most prestigious award category is the American Visions Award Nominees.  The judges nominate five works of art for this category.  The five American Vision Award nominees and the Gold Key Award recipients are submitted in early February for judging in the national competition.  The national jurors in New York will select the American Visions Award recipient for the region from the five regional nominees.
