The Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara honored 29 student artists during a presentation and reception at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art on March 8.

Selected as winners of the Foundation’s 2018 Art Scholarship Competition, the students addressed family members and supporters in the museum’s Mary Craig Auditorium.

Each winner receives a $2,500 scholarship, and all winning art submissions will be exhibited in the museum’s Family Resource Center through March 15.

The best of show winner receives an additional $1,000 scholarship. This year, Miguel Sota from San Marcos High School was awarded the Schall Family Best of Show Prize.
“The Scholarship Foundation is pleased to recognize these talented young artists and provide them with opportunities to continue their studies and pursue their dreams,” said Barbara Robertson, interim president/CEO of the foundation.

“This annual reception and exhibition is always inspiring," she said. "We are very proud of our role in encouraging local student artists to push themselves creatively and further hone their skills.”
Each year, the Scholarship Foundation invites high school seniors in southern Santa Barbara County to submit a portfolio of original work for its art scholarship competition.

The submissions are judged by a panel of prominent local artists at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s Ridley-Tree Education Center at McCormick House. This year, 70 student artists competed. The judging took place March 1.

Serving as judges this year were Anthony Askew, Patti Jacquemain and Judy Larson.

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!
