The Sutton Award for Student Conservation Art has offered major scholarships to Oklahoma high school students for 11 years. The immediate impact of these cash awards were clear among the winners, but we would now like to follow-up with past awardees to determine the lasting impacts of the Sutton Award. This information will help us to inform the award program sponsors how their generous support translates into student development as these budding artists enter their varied careers.
We have constructed two online surveys to follow-up with past participants, one for student entrants and another for teacher/mentors. Please consider contributing 5-10 minutes of your time to fill out the survey that applies to you. It will surely help us to refine the Sutton Award experience and ensure that Oklahoma students continue to have this fantastic opportunity to be rewarded for their creative and meaningful conservation art projects.
