The third week in March is traditionally designated Illinois Arts Education Week by the governor. The next Illinois Arts Education Week, a cooperative effort of the Illinois Arts Education Association and ISBE, will be March 12-18, 2018. The 2018 contest is for Illinois students, grades K-8, public, private, or home schooled. The theme of this year’s poster contest is “The Arts Make History Come Alive!” in tribute to Illinois’ bicentennial. The imagery should reflect the theme, as well as represent all five areas of art (dance, drama, media, music, and visual arts).
There is no limit to the number of entries per school, but only one entry per student.
Please fill out the downloadable contest form and send or deliver entries to ISBE by Dec. 12.
