Instead of automatically using the competition’s winning piece for the collegewide poster, the top three pieces and several honorable mentions will be digitally displayed in the fall, and the college community will vote on the piece they would like to see used as the poster.

The winning poster will be announced and all the winners recognized at the annual Student Academic Conference. First, second and third prize winners receive a monetary award. There may be several honorary mentions as well. In addition, the piece selected for the poster will receive an additional award. As in previous years, travel assistance may be available for the top three winners so they can attend the Student Academic Conference and showcase their winning pieces at the Art Show in October.

Last year, we were very excited by the volume and quality of submissions received, and we look forward to the same this year.

Students are encouraged to submit artwork online to be reviewed by a committee of judges across the state. Any type/medium of art is accepted for judging, but it must be submitted as a two-dimensional electronic image. Submissions are due by June 22.
