Annual Leadership Institute - Student Art Contest
2014 Student Art Contest
Details coming soon!
For Teachers and Principals
KASA is proud to announce its first Student Art Contest, calling for student-produced artwork that explores this year’s theme: World Class Education.
The contest asks students to use their creative skills to create a mural designed around the theme “Giving Our Kids a World-Class Education.”
Please read the “For Students” section to help guide your students in this project. Students should submit art work to their school principal, who will select one (1) piece per age group, per school to enter in the contest. Only one (1) art piece is accepted per age category, regardless of whether it is an individual or group submission. If your school has students in more than one age category, you can submit more than one art piece.
Principals should submit the artwork to KASA before May 13, 2013. Please encourage your students to participate in the contest. We welcome any feedback that will help us improve this contest. Your support will help Kentucky students to think more closely about the impact a world class education can have on their school communities.
When you think about having a world class education what comes to mind? What does it mean to you to have a world class education?
