2023 was our first year bringing back the popular Student Art Show after a short hiatus. We are so proud to report that we received over 100 pieces of student artwork, which showcased the incredibly talented students throughout our school districts in Chenango and Broome counties. Congratulations again to all the winners! This year, we hope to make the Student Art Show even bigger and better, and we cannot do this without your help.
