About the Annual Teenage Art Competition:

In 1972, three high school art teachers, Charles Wollowitz, Roberta Braen, and Nancy Peck of Nottingham and Corcoran High Schools with Herb Williams, Director of CFAC, engaged in a strategic planning process that led to the development of an art show and competition in response to a need to provide competition and exhibition opportunities for African American, Asian, Latinx, Native American and other underrepresented students attending high schools in the Syracuse area. Subsequently, the Syracuse Chapter of The Links, Incorporated in conjunction with the Syracuse City School District joined CFAC and art teachers from the local community to continue these efforts.
