The American Visions Medals, the highest regional honors, are given to one artist from each region.
Five works of writing and five works of art from each region are selected by local judges as American Voices & Visions nominees, who are then celebrated in local exhibitions and ceremonies. From the pool of nominees, a panel of jurors in New York City selects one artist from each region to receive an American Visions Medal, a non-financial highest regional honor. These Medalists are celebrated during National Events and at the National Exhibition in New York City.

The Jefferson West High School Family, Career and Community Leaders of America Chapter recently had a fundraiser to help pay for a student's tuition for one year from Zimbabwe, Africa. The student, Amanda Zambuko, is a 17 year old who wishes to become a nurse. Her tuition for one year is $395 and the FCCLA chapter sold Yuda Band bracelets made of leather, string, coconut shells and paint created by students in Guatemala who also benefit from programs such as these. The project was so successful that the students made $933.00 by charging $7 for each bracelet. One of the benefits of raising this money is that the entire student body from JWHS will get to Skype with Amanda and learn more about her. Leaders from the project were Becca Mitchell and Brianna Reynolds. In the picture from left to right in the back are Josey Dove, Adelaide Justise, Taylor Zwygart, and Jamie Osborn. In the front are Becca Mitchell and Gretchen Rudolph. The chapter is sponsored by Leslie Abbott.
Congratulations to KAMS senior Charlotte Straley for being named a National Merit Finalist! Only about 1% of all PSAT test takers in the U.S. (approx. 1.6 million students) are awarded this high honor each year. Charlotte will join a prestigious group of students who will have an opportunity to apply for a variety of merit scholarship awards. We couldn't be prouder! ...information shared from Fort Hays State University Kansas Academy of Mathmetics and Science Facebook Page
