Art pieces are collected at the school level. 10 entries advance to the district level. Then of those 440, some advance to the state level. And the state gets to send several entries onto the national level. Please click here to learn more.

** Please note the only help parents can give their child is buying materials and submitting the entry form.  Otherwise all effort must be the child’s work.
