Appalachian State University's annual Outdoor Sculpture Competition, now in its third year, is made possible through the patronage of Martin and Doris Rosen. The Rosens continue to be a major force contributing to the success of An Appalachian Summer and cultural programming at Appalachian State University.

The sculpture competition, on view year round at the Appalachian State University campus, is a dynamic component of the visual arts on campus. Martin and Doris Rosen provide each of the ten selected sculptors with a five hundred dollar honorarium to facilitate their individual works. From the ten participants, one artist's work is then selected to receive the Rosen Prize, a cash award of five thousand dollars.
