Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara Supports Young Artists

Scholarships are awarded to 18 seniors from five local high schools

The Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara is proud to support local art students through its annual Art Scholarship Exhibition and Awards.

2011 marks the 32nd year of the Scholarship Foundation’s art patrons providing local art students scholarship support from the community.

Scholarships were awarded to 18 high school seniors planning to continue their education in the arts. This year’s winners attend Dos Pueblos, San Marcos, Laguna Blanca, Carpinteria and Santa Barbara high schools.

Awards were based on the quality of student portfolios. The competition was judged by local artists Anthony Askew, Patti Jacquemain and Joan Rosenberg-Dent. The Art Scholarship Exhibition and Reception was held Thursday at the Ridley Tree Education Center.

Each year there are a number of talented art students the foundation must turn away because of a lack of funds. Please contact the Scholarship Foundation at 805.687.6065 if you or your business or community group would like to sponsor a scholarship for young artists.

Since 1962, the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara has helped more than 25,000 Santa Barbara County students more than $65 million in awards. The Scholarship Foundation manages scholarship funds for many businesses, organizations, associations, civic and service clubs, family foundations and individuals.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
