Artist of the Week

This television campaign, conceptualized by NEIU 19, is designed to call attention to high school students who have excelled in the study of the arts. The partnering high school selects two students, one visual artist and one performing artist, who will be interviewed at the WVIA studios for a 1-minute vignette. The Artist of the Week spot showcases the student, high school, and school district and salutes them for their artistic achievement and will be aired on WVIA TV for one week and will be available here on wvia.org for one year. That artist will receive a copy of their performance and then be in the running to compete for Artist of the Year and honored on our Scholastic Achievement Awards Show in May. For students in Grades 10-12

WVIA will once again be offering each of our member schools the opportunity to participate in the Artist of the Week program, hosted by WVIA, in partnership with the Pennsylvania College of Technology. The Artist of the Week program features two students from each of our member high schools who have demonstrated exceptional achievement in visual arts, theatre, music or dance. The student chosen will be promoted on WVIA TV during the week that he or she is chosen as Artist of the Week and featured on wvia.org for the entire school year. They will then be entered in the running to be our Artist of the Year. Please choose one performing artist and one visual artist that we can schedule to come to the studios together.

Selection of the student should be at the discretion of the high school teacher and/or administrator. Criteria should be based on the student’s exceptional talent in the arts and overall character. The student and advising teacher will be required to come to WVIA to interview, with our production staff, what will become a one minute vignette featuring his or her talent.

The dates and times for the half hour long taping sessions are September 27 and 28; October 17-19 at the WVIA Studios in Pittston. We are taping at the Community Arts Center in Williamsport on November 8-10. If you are interested in participating in the program, please complete Icon this form (153.5 KB) and return to Andrea O’Neill no later than Wednesday, September 21 or fax to (570) 655- 1180. WVIA will have a completed schedule by Friday, September 23 and notify participants and the teacher with the details via email.

If you have any questions, please contact Andrea O’Neill at 570-602-1182 or andreao’neill@wvia.org
