SBAA plans to give out (3) Scholarships this November at our 28th Annual Nita Elder Student Scholarship Show (11/18 – 11/19).
The full amount of these (3) Scholarships to local high school art students will all rest on the fundraising we do this year.
Our goal is $1000 per student but that all rests on the generosity of our local community.
