TUCSON, Ariz. -- In its inaugural year, the Arizona State Seal of Arts Proficiency will be awarded to 46 Tucson Unified seniors on their graduation diplomas.

Awarded by the state's Department of Education, the honor is in recognition of student achievements in music, dance, visual art, theater, and media arts.

Despite the move to online learning for the remainder of the spring semester, students founds ways to present their creations online -- with final interviews between the committee charged with vetting the students' work and those students taking place through Zoom.

On top of the recognition on the diploma, qualifying students will also receive a $1,000 Fine Arts Tuition Scholarship through the University of Arizona Fred Fox School of Music.
