Each year the Tempe Union High Schools Education Foundation offers Senior Fine Arts students the opportunity to compete for scholarships. The students submit their artwork to be viewed at the annual HOPE in Education event in an art show. Event attendees each have one vote, and the four students who receive the most votes are awarded a scholarship.
