Congratulations to 2017 Senior Scholarship Winners

The Kansas Art Education Association would like to announce the 2017 recipients of the Harry Hart Memorial Scholarship! Named for a longtime art educator, this $500 award is given each year to two senior art students nominated by their art teacher who is a current KAEA member.  Funds will be distributed for student use at the higher learning institution of their choice. 

Recipients for 2017 are Clare Fallon, student of Brad LeDuc at Washburn Rural High School and Branden Lawless, student of Natalie Brown at Derby High School.  Congratulations on this distinguished honor!

This year's winners were selected from a pool of 21 applicants.  Judges include Friends University faculty members Karen Scroggins and Aaron Krone.  The recipients were recognized at the Youth Art Month celebration in the capital building in Topeka on Saturday, February 25th, 2017.
