Scholarship Foundation Announces Art Scholarship Award Winners

Community donations will help 16 local high school seniors continue their education

The Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara has announced its 2010 Art Scholarship Award winners.

They are: Shirin Makareni, Keaton Hudson, Sally Yingst, Casey Underwood, Skyler Muench, Sheridan Massey, Ariane Schmidt-Clausius, Tynan Daniels, Ashley Torrey, Oliver Riesenweber, Dayana Oropeza, Sarah Friedland, Braelyn Hamill, Phillip Freegard, Sabrina Sorich and Amber Rexford.

2010 marks the 31st year the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara has connected local art students with scholarship support from community donors.

An exhibition and reception was held Thursday at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s Ridley-Tree Education Center. Patsy Hicks, director of education at the museum, served as the master of ceremonies.

Art awards are based on the quality of student portfolios, and are granted to high school seniors planning to continue their education in the arts. The 2010 competition was judged by local artists Anthony Askew, Jan Handtmann and Patti Jacquemain.

The Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara inspires, encourages and supports Santa Barbara County students in their pursuit of college, graduate and vocational education through financial aid advising and scholarships.

— Rebecca Anderson is the director of development for the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara.

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!
