Morgan
Morgan Gruer joined us again this year for the monumental task of processing Region-at-Large submissions. Having previous years under her belt, she know what she was getting in to, and it was great to work with her again! An artist from a young age, Morgan is now studying in New York City and making her mark as a young emerging artist.
“I am currently a third-year undergraduate student at Pratt Institute studying Communications Design with a concentration in Advertising and Art Direction. Before Pratt, I spent the last two years studying Studio Art at Skidmore College. I am passionate about both design and the fine arts – really, I love anything creative.”

When the time comes to process Region-at-Large submissions, we bring in a small team of interns to help with the task. And this is no small task! Region-at-Large is where you submit your work if you don’t have a local affiliate program, and we saw some great art and writing being entered this year! Katherine¬†Yee is an Awards alum and came back to join us for a second year of submission processing! Of the task, Katie says:

“In these past few weeks, I’ve handled countless submissions. The Alliance says there are more coming in every year. Although it might seem intimidating at first, the sheer volume of people who probably dream of doing the same things you do, you realize it’s less of a competitive environment and more of a community. It’s inspiring, really, that so many students express themselves so creatively and are brave enough to put their work into the world.”
