This campaign is designed to call attention to high school students who have excelled in the study of the arts. The partnering high school selects two students, one visual artist and one performing artist, who are then interviewed at the WVIA Public Media studios for a digital video vignette. The “Artist of the Week” vignette showcases the student, high school, and school district and salutes them for their artistic achievement. The students will be featured across all WVIA television, radio and digital platforms for one week and the accompanying vignette will be available to watch on wvia.org and pbs.org for one year. Selected artists will then be in the running to compete for “WVIA Artist of the Year”, which is announced in May.
West Scranton High School is proud to announce that Hannah and Ryan have been honored by being named “WVIA Artists of the Week”.
