The Kraus Awards

Drawing Competition Winners Announced

Winners of this year's Patrick J. Kraus Freshman Drawing Competition were announced at a reception in the Communications Hall Gallery on April 12.

The juried competition, judged by NCC fine arts faculty members, is funded by the Kraus Endowment Fund. The fund, established by the late John "Duke" Kraus, former NCC bookstore manager, and his wife, Katherine, honors the memory of their son, Patrick, a talented artist who attended NCC in 1985-86.

Winners receive scholarships for the following academic year. First- and second-place drawings become part of NCC's permanent collection and are displayed in Kopecek Hall and at the Monroe campus.
