Participants must be enrolled in a public, private or parochial high school program that includes 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grade, and must live in the United States.
The jury is made up of faculty members at the Cleveland Institute of Art. Each juror will be responsible for judging one of the four main categories that include Visual Arts, Design, Digital Arts, and Craft. Once the four category winners have been determined, the jurors will then review their work again, and vote on a ‘Best in Show’ winner.
The judging criteria will be based on originality and technical skill as defined below.
Art teachers are not required to register, but their participation plays an important role in getting students to engage in the competition, and begin thinking about career paths in art and design. However, once a student completes the registration form and submits their artwork, we will contact the teacher to confirm that he/she is their student.
