The 2020 Scholastic Art Show is taking place at the Whitney building at Onondaga Community College through Friday February 28th. The show opened Tuesday January 21st with a ceremony for the silver and gold key winners. This prestigious national competition begins at the state level by region. This year there were 4,650 works of art submitted by junior and senior high school students from the Central NY region, which is the second largest region in the national competition. Cazenovia High School had 38 students participate in this year’s competition, submitting 55 individual works of art. Four of the students were seniors who also submitted an 8 piece portfolio representative of their hard work, dedication and growth as artists throughout their career at Cazenovia. The regional award winners were listed in the January 26th Sunday Post Standard.
