High School Art Competition 2013-14
The 2013-2014 High School Art Competition is now closed and the "Best of Show" has been awarded!
Kelli Meyer, of Strawberry Point, IA, has been awarded the “Best of Show” in Grand View’s High School Art Competition for 2013-14. As the competition winner, she receives a $5,000 annually renewable scholarship to major in Art & Design at Grand View.
In its third year, the High School Art Competition draws hundreds of entries from all over the U.S. every month from October through February. Each month one winner and two honorable mentions are chosen; the monthly winners then compete for Best of Show. This year the monthly winners, in addition to Kelli, were from Oak Park, CA; San Ramon, CA; Columbia, MO; and St. Paul, MN. Kelli's November entry was named the winner and qualified her for the "Best of Show" competition.
As she prepares to enter Grand View this coming fall, Kelli was asked her reaction to winning the competition. “Amazed, overjoyed, ecstatic, thankful. These are just a few of the emotions I felt when I received the call awarding me Best of Show. I am beyond grateful to have received this honor. Before receiving this scholarship, I was unsure whether it was a good idea to seek an art major. Winning this competition has given me the confidence to continue pursuing a degree in Graphic Design or Studio Arts. Thanks to this opportunity, I can now afford the amazing education I know Grand View will provide. Not only will this scholarship help me further my education, but it will also benefit every other aspect of my future. I would just like to thank Grand View and the art department for this outstanding opportunity.”
