Eligibility Requirements: High school students
Scholarship will be awarded to students with the top submissions in the two categories below:
High school students may submit visual art and photography–painting, drawing, ceramics, glass, sculpture, mixed media, printmaking, weaving, digital and 35mm photography.
These must be submitted as digital files, which must be a minimum 300 dpi JPEG.
All work must be the student’s original work. Submit only one entry. By submitting your work to us, you are giving NSHSS and its partners, affiliates, and licensees the non-exclusive right to publish your work in any format, including print, electronic, and online media. However, all individual contributors to NSHSS retain the right to submit their work for non-exclusive publication elsewhere, and you have our permission to do so.
Finalists will be contacted to submit physical artworks if appropriate for the category. These will be shipped to the NSHSS headquarters at the finalist’s expense and will be retained by NSHSS.
You may view the application before submitting your application, but once you submit your application, it is closed for editing.
