The annual student art competition takes place each spring. Students are encouraged to submit art in any medium as a two-dimensional electronic image.

In 2015, the art work selected as the winning piece will not automatically be chosen as the art work displayed on the poster that is distributed collegewide. Instead, the top three pieces and several honorable mentions will be digitally displayed and the college community will vote on the piece they would like to see as the poster.

The winning pieces will be announced in the fall. At that point collegewide voting for the piece to be displayed on the poster will begin.

The winning poster will be announced and all the winners recognized at the annual Student Academic Conference. First, second and third prize winners receive a monetary award. There may be several honorary mentions as well. In addition, the piece selected for the poster will receive an additional award.

Last year we were very excited by the volume and quality of submissions received and we look forward to the same this year.
