2012 ART ESSAY CONTEST

The Fine Arts Society of the Southern Tier Inc. (FASST) has been promoting the arts throughout the Southern Tier of New York for over 100 years. Our mission is to encourage growth and development of local artists. For the past several years our organization has been hosting a Young at Art juried show for local high school students with great success.

With the news coverage on school academics this year, the FASST Board decided to offer an art essay contest to allow the art students to express themselves in words versus a canvass. The FASST review panel was very pleased with the entries, We found that the students had no trouble expressing the importance of art in their lives. There were ten 10) winners and each received a $100 and a FASST Certificate of Achievement. We want to not only thank the winners but also all the students who participated for a job well done.
