The W.T. Graham Award is presented to 42 students from each of the six regions participating in the Youth Art Month Ceremony at the State Capital. Artwork selected for this award is framed, exhibited and later returned to the student. The school also receives a special certificate.

Also having his artwork on display in Madison is Sheboygan North High student Justin Thao (teacher Frank Juarez). In addition to having his artwork on display at the State Capital for Youth Art Month, he will also receive a special award from Sax.
