|Grade 12 Calgary Stampede Art Scholarship
The Grade 12 Calgary Stampede Art Scholarship was created to encourage students who are in their final year of high school and planning to pursue post-secondary education. Scholarships are awarded to students attending Senior High Schools in both the City of Calgary and Southern Alberta. Winning students receive scholarships to attend post secondary education in the field of their choosing – it is not limited to art. Student art submissions are displayed in Hall D of the BMO Centre for the duration of the Stampede.
Past recipients of the Grade 12 Calgary Stampede Art Scholarship have had art works juried into many areas of Western Showcase, Art Auction, Art Gallery, Art Gallery Artist’s Window and participated in the Art Auction Quick Draw/Quick Finish.
Artists and others proficient in art, donate their time to jury all submissions.
Thank you to Swinton’s Art Supply & Studios for welcoming students and Western Showcase volunteers into their studio. The support given to our future artists is greatly appreciated.
Students awarded Honourable Mention receive a gift certificate for art supplies from Swinton’s Art Supplies & Studio.
