The UCM High School Competitive Exhibition is a selection of outstanding artwork that will be on display March 23 – April 3, 2020, and is open to all high school students. Students are allowed two (2) pieces of work. Students can enter any original work that falls into the classifications that follow.

Original work is generally thought to be work that originates from the following sources: the artist’s imagination, still life, model and nature. This does not preclude the use of photographs as a point of departure for the sensitive artist. If the photographs are used they should be the student’s own and indicated in the provided space on the entry blank for the purpose of clarification and judging.
