Works are judged on originality, technical skill, and emergence of a personal vision or voice. Just over 34% of the individual entries received awards. Gold (first), Silver (second), and Honorable Mention (third). Gold Key winners will go on to compete at the national level. Artwork will be on display at OPS TAC Building at 3215 Cuming St., Omaha, NE 68131 during the month of March. The Nebraska Regional Awards ceremony will be on Saturday, March 2nd at 10:00 a.m..  In case of inclement weather, the ceremony will take place on March 9th.

Congratulations to these talented Art students and their instructor, Julie Lade-Wills, for their outstanding work and for once again #RaisingTheBar at Ashland-Greenwood High School!
