The 2012 Scholastic Art Awards for the West Central Michigan Region were announced today and I am very proud to say that BCWMS had the most Middle School awards out of all other participating schools! In addition, the high school also received recognition with 40 award winners and one American Vision Nominee! Below are the BCWMS works selected for the awards. Students who won Silver and Gold Keys will participate in a show at Kendall College of Art and Design with an awards ceremony to celebrate the artists on February 12th. Gold Keys will move onto the national competition; winners will be announced this Spring.
Student work was submitted for the Scholastic Art Awards today. Here are only a few examples of the stellar works from students grades 7-12 whose work will compete for prizes in this year's competition. Results will be announced on Friday. The work is also on display until the end of the week at the Van Singel Fine Arts Center as a part of the 1st-12th grade District Art Show.
Since the edublog awards are looking for nominations, I thought I would post some of my favorites here to help recognize the teachers and bloggers that help me get ideas to improve what I do in my classroom. I would like to nominate the following blogs and resources for the following awards:

Congrats to Tena and Katelyn whose work was selected in today's competition for the Michigan Art Education Association Region 9 Show at the Grand Rapids Art Museum.
Student work from all over West Michigan will be on display at the GRAM from February 22nd through March 10th, with a reception for students on February 23rd from 6-8 p.m.
Both Tena's hallway drawing and Katelyn's self-portrait were Silver Key winners at Scholastic this year as well.
This is a great opportunity for our students to compete and display their work downtown.
I am always amazed at the amount of patience it takes for a stop-motion animated film to be made.
This image is from the AYAW blog which features students whose work has received national recognition from Scholastic. As a featured artist, Ian Boone Timothy's work in creating and producing the animation "Beaver Creek" is discussed and shown.
I look forward to hearing the results of the animation shown below made by BCWMS students Matthew, Tyler, and Matt who were awarded a gold regional key to compete at the national level.
The annual West Michigan Regional Scholastic Art Awards ceremony was held today at St. Celicia's Music Society with a reception following at Kendall College of Art and Design.
BCPS had 20 students receive awards at this years even and the gold key winners will go onto the National Competition in NYC. The National Scholastic winners will be announced in April.
"The Blob Adventures: Part 1, " an animation by Matthew Z, Tyler D, and Matt E, will represent BCWMS this year.
I love this time of year and this event that celebrates the talents and imaginations of our kids!
