2018 marks 51 years of this popular annual exhibition at the Swope Art Museum. Director Howard E. Wooden initiated this exhibition in 1966 in cooperation with the Vigo County School Corporation to showcase the excellence of area students and art educators. Wooden believed that the perspectives of young talent reflect the health and cultural awareness of a community. Rachel Hellmann served as the 2018 juror for the high school selections. Hellman selected 12 merit award winners:
