The Ohio Governor's Youth Art Exhibition, now in its forty-ninth year, is dedicated to the educational and artistic advancement of our talented young people in the state of Ohio. The exhibition is open to all of Ohio's 1,112 high schools, both public and private, chartered by the State of Ohio Department of Education.
Its purpose is to provide all budding young artists of the state with opportunities to advance their talent, whether that be through scholarships or simply experiencing the process of entering their work in a competition. The exhibition is a valuable incentive for our young people; it encourages an appreciation for the arts throughout Ohio and reflects the fine quality of art instruction and talent which exist in our state. From the 11,500 regional entries from the 15 regions, approximately 2,500 are selected to enter the state judging. State jurors then select 300 for the actual exhibition.
The Twinsburg City School District is very Tiger Proud to announce that THS sophomore Makiyah Harris’ Digital Media/Computer Art entitled, “Adaptation” has been selected for this year’s Ohio Governor’s Youth Art Exhibition.
