Huntingdon, Pa. – On Monday, Dec. 4, 2017, Juniata College will host an exhibition of local high school students’ artwork alongside artwork from the campus community in the College’s newest facility, Kepple Hall. The art being displayed includes entries into the German Campus Week photo contest.

Monika Malewska, the judge for the contest and associate professor of art at Juniata, has put together the exhibition of the entries. Winners will be publicly announced and prizes awarded at the reception. The event will also serve as the exhibition opening.

The contest had three categories for three types of entrants: high school students, campus community members (including alumni and emeriti faculty) and prospective students. There were 11 entries in the high school category (all will be part of the exhibit).

The reception is from 7:00-7:45 pm. It is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.

The contest was part of German Campus Week, a series of events created in honor of the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Supported by a Grant from the Germany Embassy, the week’s activities ranged from a poster and art exhibition to presentations and a film screening. The efforts were created to raise awareness for the German program at the College and in the community, especially for high school students who might be interested in studying German language and culture in college.
