I agree - four years ago I helped jury $50,000 in drawing and printmaking
fellowships for the state of Arkansas - there were three highly qualified
jurors, and after much effort we finally decided there simply weren't enough
applicants who were of fellowship caliber to warrant giving away all the
available money. That was very painful and a little awkward. They put the
balance back in the grant pool for the next media rotation - painting, I
think.

The Arkansas Museum of Art has a first rate national drawing
competition/exhibit annually - the catalogue might be a good resource for
your class to see the best in current drawing.
