UI High School Art Exhibition

Submission Guidelines

  • Eligibility
    High school students, grades 9-12, here’s an opportunity to show off your creativity, knowledge, and inspiration! Whether you’re interested in human rights, art, or both, this is an event in which you should get involved.
  • Participation Benefits and Prizes
    Your finished product will be viewed by college and graduate students, professors, and peers with similar interests statewide. This is also an excellent event to include on your college applications!
  • Submission Guidelines

    Artwork is to be shipped in the flat postage-paid mailer provided to your school. At the conclusion of the exhibition, all artwork will be returned to participating schools in this same mailer.

    The work must have an outside dimension of 18" high and 24" wide. There should be at least a 1" border around the image area to accommodate installation of the work. Smaller works should be mounted on an 18”X24” piece of paper or board.

    The student's name should appear in the lower left-hand corner within the allotted border area, and the school name should appear in the lower right-hand corner within the border area.

    Artwork must be received no later than Tuesday, February 17, 2015.

  • A Note to Teachers

    Schools may submit as many pieces as they’d like, however due to increased participation, please limit entries to one per student. In addition, postal rate increases and budget cuts have severely affected our mailing budget. We appreciate your attention to limiting the weight of the work you send. Judging will occur after the work is installed.

  • Scheduling a Visit
