Winners of the 2018 Youth De'VIA
 Competition Announced

This competition was for all deaf school-age children and youth. Artists were encouraged to incorporate one or more aspects of Deaf people’s communication, culture, or history in their submissions. 

Submission of art was solicited in four categories: 
• Two Dimensional Art 
• Three Dimensional Art 
• Photography 
• Computer Generated Art (Graphic Design) 

Art was judged in three grade groups in each category: 
• Elementary (K-5) 
• Middle School (6-8) 
• High School (9-12) 

The Youth De'VIA Competition received 373 pieces of artwork from seven schools. The artwork was incredible and KSD is very proud of all the submissions. These are our future Deaf artists! All winners in each grade group received a certificate of recognition and a gift.

Murals in West Wing Roth

Recently student-created murals were unveiled in the West Wing hallway of Roth outside of the conference room. Check out the three (3) colorful murals below.

“The Sight of ASL” - 

This panel shows the value of eyes within deaf culture. It is unique for Deaf culture as they are very visual people. 

"What we see is important and valued for ASL. We are all different, we all have our own style, the way we sign is different, some are slow and some are fast" - Taylor Wise, KSD Student

“Reach our Dream” 

This panel is made up of outlines of hands depicting various ASL classifiers and signs. The students wanted the painting to depict a certain perspective, as if the viewer were laying in the grass looking up. They wanted to portray a message that conveyed a break-through; an image that would showed potential, and the possibilities for deaf people.

“Diversity of Deaf Pride”

This panel displays portraits of all of the students who participated in the project. The students were able to paint and design their own portrait in their own style. This piece shows unity and diversity of colors, hearing levels, and capabilities.
