Our Awards Program
The National K12 Ceramic Exhibition Foundation

Our awards program was created by the curator in our very first exhibition to further honor and validate excellence in our National K-12 Exhibition. While simply gaining acceptance into the exhibition is an honor for any student, we have also created this program to cite and recognize excellence in Artistic Merit, Artistic Achievement, excellence in various techniques, ideas, and overall execution of the work.  Seeing the exhibition itself has prompted many people to step up and offer new awards according to their own inspiration. Since our fundamental goal is to encourage and showcase excellence in American ceramic art education, we are open to new ideas and recognition from the public and have a procedure to accommodate evolving needs and dreams.
