Art Spark Youth Art Contest

Art Spark seeks to recognize students’ hard work and talent, and the school’s efforts to provide an enriched education. 

We were excited to provide an opportunity for art teachers and schools to showcase their students’ ability by submitting ten (10) pieces of original artwork. Artwork was judged by professional artists and awarded prizes in two divisions (Div.I-Elementary & Div.II-Middle School) and all are eligible for Art Spark Best in Show!

Entries were  judged and prizes awarded as follows:

  • 1st & 2nd place by school
  • 1st, 2nd & 3rd by division (Div.I-Elementary & Div.II-Middle School)
  • Best in Show - Individual (Div.I and II combined)
  • Spark of Inspiration - Instructor/School for their collection of entries
