For more than 50 years, the Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild has been a champion for youth, art and education in Pittsburgh. Historically, MCG has hosted an annual juried arts exhibition where talented students from Pittsburgh Public Schools competed for accolades and awards. The MCG Invitational continues this tradition of serving Pittsburgh area high-school students. By providing this opportunity, the MCG Invitational will highlight talent, reward achievement, and encourage hope among those who might otherwise be overlooked.


The MCG Invitational seeks to recognize excellence and extol achievement demonstrated by youth in the greater Pittsburgh area. By heralding these values, this exhibition will reward meritorious students with cash awards, prizes and post-secondary education scholarships.
