2017-18 District Art Show

  • The District’s Choice Award art project is now underway. Each student is encouraged to submit one piece of art to his/her home school. Each school will then choose one piece of art from those submitted as the School’s Choice. Those pieces will be prominently displayed at the District Service Center for one (1) year with the exception of the District Choice Award winners which will become a part of the district’s permanent art collection.

    There will be one District Choice Award winner chosen from each level, elementary, middle, and high school.

  • Additional pieces will be selected to receive awards which include:

    • Meridian Mayor’s Award
    • West Ada Director's Award
    • Star Mayor’s Award
    • Idaho State University's Award
    • Eagle Mayor’s Award
    • Eagle Arts Commission Award

    • Meridian Chamber of Commerce President’s Award
    • Boise State University Dean of Education Award
    • Eagle Chamber of Commerce Award
    • Board of Trustees Award (Elementary, Middle, and High School)

    The pieces chosen for these awards will hang in the respective offices for one (1) year. They will be returned to the artists in April of the following year.

    School Choice Award winners will be honored at an art show and reception on April 26, 2018, from 6:30-8:30pm for both Elementary and Secondary at the New Star Middle School Gym.
