2013 Krylon® Clear Choice Art Scholarship Winners

This year we were excited to review over 50 outstanding portfolios for our scholarship competition. The talent of young artists is continuously growing, making judging increasingly difficult. We are pleased to announce the 2013 winners who are featured below.

Five scholarship recipients received $1,000 scholarships to the college of their choice, as well as a package of Krylon® artist products. The scholarship recipients’ high school art programs also received $500 grants and Krylon artist products, from which multiple students will benefit. Also, nine additional students received Krylon product packages valued at $70 each, and their high school art programs received product packages valued at $250 each.
