Seven CBA students were among more than 1,000 Central New York students who had their artwork selected for prizes in the 2023 CNY Scholastic Art Awards, sponsored by M & T Bank and hosted by Onondaga Community College.

A panel of judges made up of professional artists, educators and photographers judged the pieces and selected 1,155 works for Gold Key, Silver Key and honorable mention awards.

An awards ceremony was held at SRC Arena on the campus of OCC on Jan. 17, and featured Gold Key first-place selections for entry in national competition, as well as for local awards, cash prizes and special recognition.
