ENTRY REQUIREMENTS (All participants must also follow the arts category and if applicable, Special Artist Division rules)

  • Only new pieces of artwork inspired by the current year’s theme may be submitted.

Only one student may be recognized as the award recipient for each entry. See the specific arts category rules and special artist division rules for details.
