High School Exhibit

Want an opportunity to display your very best work at a top professional show?
CAROLINA DESIGNER CRAFTSMEN GUILD INVITES YOU TO CELEBRATE ITS 44th ANNIVERSARY WITH AN EXHIBIT OF THE VERY BEST IN HIGH SCHOOL DESIGNER CRAFTS DURING OUR ANNUAL THANKSGIVING WEEKEND GALA!

The Carolina Designer Craftsmen Guild seeks to promote North Carolina’s high school designer craftsmen.  Beginning in 2009 we have sponsored a high school booth at our annual show over Thanksgiving weekend located at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds.  From both the community and exhibiting craftsmen there has been great enthusiasm and support for the high school exhibit.  Through the generosity of our exhibiting members, our scholarship award has grown from $100 the first year of the High School exhibit to $500.

All North Carolina High School students are invited to apply for the exhibit.  Please share the CDCG website, carolinadesignercraftsmen.com , and CDCG High school Exhibit information flyer with every high school instructor and high school student designer craftsmen you know!
