Lansing area students had an opportunity to display their artwork and hopefully win awards for their outstanding efforts. The Michigan State University Federal Credit Union, The Capital Area Women’s Lifestyle Magazine and The M3 Group hosted this event. The selective number of students from the 19 participating schools hope to win a award. The exhibit includes paintings, sculptures and photography. The artwork is displayed throughout the MSUFCU lobby headquarters located on 3777 West Road in East Lansing.
Ryan Fogoros, who visited the exhibit, said “Personally, I believe that this art is important for students to express themselves and it gives the students something to look forward to in the community and hopefully others will appreciate the student’s work. When I saw the art inside the Federal Credit Union I was surprised to see the amount of work that was there and some amazing pieces I could never create and I respect those students that do that.”There are three types of awards: the Social Media Award, The People’s Choice Award, and The School Spirit Award. These awards are selected by the public and anyone can vote. In addition to these awards, there are juried awards and honorable mentions, which are determined by judges.

The exhibit closes the voting and an award ceremony will be held 6 p.m., Feb. 28, at the MSUFCU Headquarters.
