Congratulations to all!!

A very warm thank you to the Wickford Art Association for funding this
generous scholarship, and our judges who put aside their hectic
schedules for us.  I want to mention briefly that the WAA and RIAEA
treats the judging of this scholarship very seriously.  All judges
chosen have no relationship to any school system in RI, and are not
given the names, school systems, or any information other than media
while the judging process unfolds.

The work the students entered, despite wether they
received an award, is such a credit to the fantastic art education
programs all over RI. Congratulations to all, for your hard work,
efforts, and faith in your magnificent students.

Although all proceeds from this event are used to provide other
scholarship opportunities, if you are not an RIAEA member and had to
pay $25 for admission, please consider becoming a member today to save
money on future events like this!  If you are a new member, but had to
pay $25.00 because your name wasn't on the RIAEA list during check-in,
please contact me separately at
