Shemer New Horizon Award

The Shemer New Horizon Award is considered very exclusive and is held every year, open to high schools valleywide. It is an art exhibit that showcases two local talents nominated by each of the participating high schools. Annually, community donors donate monetary awards that demonstrate exceptional talent in various areas and topics of art. Fewer than 10 awards are awarded to participates every year, ranging from $25 to $100.

This year, two students from Ms. Tull's advanced drawing class were both recognized at Shemer Museum for their work entered in the 2019 New Horizon's Exhibition.

More than 75 entries were submitted by various high school visual artists, from schools all over Arizona. 

Shadow Mountain students Drew Spencer and Haley Paloma both received the prestigious Linton-Barnhill Scholarship Award for their artwork submissions!

Congratulations to these two students!
