Choose 1 category… or all 6!

 

The contest theme for 2019 is “Look Within”... whatever that means to YOU! There is no right or wrong interpretation! Students, you are asked to include a 10-100 word “artist statement” on the entry form describing how YOU see your work relating to the theme. Don’t overthink this- and certainly feel free to ask a teacher for help if you get stuck on this part. :)
