The event hosted in New York Mills saw eleven Hawley High School art students participate in the April 3 event. The 18 entries from the Nugget artists represented the maximum number allowed for the nine categories. Each entry is adjudicated by three judges and the scores are then averaged.  Any art piece receiving a 16 or 17 received an Excellent rating.  Art pieces scoring 18 – 20 received a Superior rating.
