Four of the Northeastern PA Region Gold Key Award recipients are recognized as American Vision Nominees, which automatically advances them to the national competition to compete for American Vision Award for their region, the highest honor of the competition. The Northeastern PA Region includes Clinton, Columbia, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Lycoming, Monroe, Montour, Northumberland, Pike, Schuylkill, Snyder, Susquehanna, Union, Wayne, and Wyoming Counties.

This year, the Museum received over 400 submissions of artwork from junior and senior high school students from 24 schools within a 15 county area.
