The annual NAZSAS has a twenty-six history of honoring excellence in the arts from Northern Arizona high school students. This show began with the Arizona State University alumni group in Sedona. Later, the Northern Arizona Watercolor Society (NAWS) took over administering the student show. Now, Made In Clarkdale (MIC), the artists’ association of Clarkdale, is very proud to host and administer this unique student art event.

“Our Board feels that sponsoring this event fits perfectly with our mission to nurture creativity and to support art education,” stated Greg Jiede, MIC Chairperson. “It’s a great way to support the visual arts in Northern Arizona high schools, provide the students with the experience of a competitive show, and to offer scholarships and cash prizes to them.”

Over 150 students and parents attended the Award Ceremony
