The School Art League recognizes the artistic accomplishments of high school students at its Annual Awards Ceremony at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.   Each year a prominent artist or arts educator is honored and presents their work as it relates to contemporary issues. Then scholarship winners are invited to the stage to receive their award.
