All participants are required to complete and sign the Student Entry Form (English, Spanish). Students who have not completely filled out the entry form will not be eligible to participate in the program. In situations where the child cannot fill out the entry form or write legibly, a parent may complete the form.
Please type or print clearly in black or blue ink (do not use pencil).
Beginning in 2011-2012, students must title their works, and the title must be included on the Student Entry Form. For most ares areas, students must also answer a few questions about how they created their works; see Required Information on the Student Entry Form.
Required Artist’s Statement
All entries must include an artist statement that describes how the piece relates to the theme. Each participant is required to submit an artist statement that describes what inspired him or her to create the work and how it relates to the theme. The artist statement is mandatory for all entries in all grade divisions. The statement may not exceed 250 words (1,000 characters maximum); there is no minimum length.
