There were 1,500 state qualifiers competing. The top 10% received a Superior Rating (IV).
Students are not interviewed at the State Event. However a panel of jurors evaluate each state entry to determine the degree that each work demonstrates originality of concept, technical expertise, understanding of the TEKS, and the interpretation of the student's stated intent. The state jury panel evaluates qualified artwork using a numeric rating system based on an established state rubric. Artworks receiving a Superior Rating (IV) are awarded the State VASE medallion.
