The National Art Education Association (NAEA) received thousands of works from across the country and 92 works were selected for National Gold Medal Art Awards. Of the works selected, eight were from the Pleasant Grove High School Art Department, representing almost ten percent of the top awards in the nation. These works will be on exhibition in the NAEA Studio & Gallery in Ruston, Virginia and on the national website beginning in February.

Representatives from the top art school in the country included in the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design (AICAD) participated as jurors: Emily Carr University of Art and Design, Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Moore College of Art & Design, Otis College of Art and Design, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and Watkins College of Art.
