This year’s VAC competition was successful because of the many judges from across the state that volunteered their time to critique the Onsite and Long Term projects, the coaches who put in endless hours preparing their students for the Regional and State events, all of the colleges and universities that hosted the eight VAC Regionals, the organization and dedication of the Regional Chairs, Terri Marche and Doug Marschalek of UW-Madison who once again hosted the State VAC Competition, the hard work of the State VAC Chairs and Contacts, the School Districts that recognize the importance of allowing their students compete in VAC, and most importantly the students who brought their energy and enthusiasm for art. Thank you once again to all who helped make this event a positive experience for Wisconsin’s aspiring artists.
