2017 HIGH SCHOOL ARTS RECOGNITION PROGRAM

Theme: Illusion/Reality

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The 17th annual City Arts of San Mateo High School Arts Recognition Program is open to all students attending Aragon, Hillsdale, and San Mateo High Schools. Our mission is to inspire, encourage, and acknowledge the creativity and talent of our high school students.

Awards are given to students from the three public high schools (see below). Also, work submitted by students are on display during the month of April for public recognition at the San Mateo Public Library (as many works as the space allows).

Visual Artwork is on display at the library's first floor hallway near the Oak Room and on the 3rd Floor in the Teen Lounge. A binder containing literary submissions is located near the Oak Room.
