How To Apply

The pages in this section of our website contain information to assist you in preparing and submitting entries for the Show.  Notice the list of pages in the “Student & Teacher Quick Links” on the right side of this page. Please review the pages in their entirety.

Pay special attention to these issues:

  • NO LATE ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED.  Final deadline is February 28, 2022, at 4:00 pm.
  • Each piece of art must be reasonably priced by the student. This is a show & sale.  Students must be willing to sell their entries.
  • Size must be considered.  The panels on which we hang the art are about 30 inches wide.  Two-dimensional work must fit in this space.
  • All pieces will be available for sale until the Show closes on March 6, 2022.
  • Teachers’ grant requests must be included with students’ art and must be clear and specific about what the requested funds will be used for.  Stating “art supplies” is not specific enough for grant requests.

Forms and Checklist

Please read the Rules and Policies, the Divisions and Categories, and the Pricing Your Artwork before you begin the submission forms. Links to the documents you need are below.

  • Fill out the Master List. There are separate forms for (1) art submitted by individual students and (2) art submitted by schools. Schools must fill out separate Master Lists for each Division. Please make copies of the forms to accommodate the number of students participating.
  • In addition to the Master List, each artist must fill out an Entry Form for each piece of artwork entered. Include all contact information: an email address and phone number where you, the artist, can be reached. School email and phone numbers are no help when school is closed.
  • Fill out one Label/Tag for each piece of artwork entered. Attach to the lower right-hand corner on the back of each two-dimensional piece or in an appropriate place on each three-dimensional piece.
  • All artwork must be received between Monday, February 22, 2022 and Monday, February 28, 2022, between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm. No late entries will be accepted. Final deadline is February 28, 2022, at 4:00 pm.


We have prepared a checklist that you can print to ensure that you have included all the required forms.

If you are a teacher who intends to apply for a grant to buy art supplies, the application letter must accompany the artwork. For more information about the grant application letter click here.
