The competition was very strong among the entries for the 51st Annual Student Art and Design Exhibition.  Twenty works wore chosen out of fifty entries to showcase the creativity and talents of our students for our first ever online exhibit. Professor Fowler, Professor Buller, and Mrs. Twyla Duke judged and juried the show, and Dr. Moore selected the winner of the Provost Award.  Four hundred and twenty-five dollars in cash prizes were awarded to the winners.
