Each year, Berrien RESA, The Box Factory for the Arts, and the Krasl Art Center work together to present two amazing student art shows, one for elementary students and one for middle school and high school students. These art shows allow local students to exhibit their artwork in a professional venue and have it viewed by hundreds of people in our communities.

Multiple juried awards are presented at the exhibition receptions, including 1st and 2nd place awards in 2D, 3D, Video and Collaborative categories. Sponsor awards include the Sarah E. Cayo Award ($500 cash award), the Emerging Artist Award ($500 cash award), the Papachi Framing Award (free custom framing for 1 elementary, middle, and high school artwork) and Berrien RESA scholarship awards ($50 art scholarships for 1 student per school).
