Encouraging the Creative

 

The McKay School of Education is one of the sponsors of the Annual Utah All-State High School Art Show that takes place during February and March. Teenage artists from all over the state submitted their original visual art in different forms, and, after a screening process, many were selected to compete for several awards and scholarships. Utah’s four congressional districts selected award winners representing their districts. The first-place piece from each district will hang in Washington, DC, for a year. A traveling exhibition was also selected from the show and will travel for a year to museums, galleries, libraries, and schools throughout Utah.

Kaylee Young was the recipient of the BYU David O. McKay School of Education Award of Excellence at the 2016 Annual Utah All-State High School Art Show, held at the Springville Museum of Art in Springville, Utah. She is a recent graduate of Herriman High School in Herriman, Utah, Jordan School District.
