Riverview Health Foundation and its Youth Board members from A Chance to Serve Program are accepting applications for the 9th Annual Healing Ceiling Art Scholarship Competition. The winner will receive a $1,000 educational scholarship provided by the Noblesville Cultural Arts Commission and Psi Iota XI Sorority.
The Healing Ceiling project came about when Linda Wheat, artist and cancer survivor, discovered that during her treatments for cancer, visualizing nature and beauty encouraged her to hope. She developed the idea of transforming the cold, clinical tiles into a portrait of the sky in effort to help other patients endure the uncertainty they experience.
To enter, all applicants must:
Be a graduating senior at a Hamilton County high school.
Complete and submit their application form by Friday, Oct. 31, 2014.
Enclose a copy of a recent piece of original artwork (please note that this year, only paintings are being accepted).
