Awarded to an area student who shows creative and technical excellence in the field of ceramics
The competition is open to all high school juniors and seniors living in Oregon and SW Washington and will award $1000 to a student who shows creative and technical excellence in the field of ceramics. The scholarship is awarded during a ceremony at the OPA Ceramic Showcase each spring, the all-clay show that OPA sponsors every spring at the Oregon Convention Center. The scholarship funds will be held in trust and paid directly to the college entered by the student. We recommend that students with exceptional imagination and technical skill enter this competition.
Entries may be either utilitarian or decorative objects made of clay. Only one entry per student. Application deadline is in March of each year.
