KSDE Annual Conference Art Design Contest

Student Art Work

All Kansas K-12 students are invited to participate in a contest to design art for the 31st Annual KSDE Annual Conference which will be held October 21-23, 2020 in Wichita, Kansas.  This contest encourages students to use their creativity by entering artwork in the KSDE Annual Conference Art Design Contest using the theme of Kansans CAN:  Soar!  With school buildings being closed, this could be an opportunity for a student art project for them to work on during their continuous learning while they’re at home.

The contest is open to all students in Kansas K-12 schools, both public and private, with a winner being selected in each of the following grade level divisions:

  • Grades K-4
  • Grades 5-8
  • Grades 9-12

From the three grade level winners, a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner will be selected and prizes will be awarded as follows:

3rd Place:          $50

2nd Place:         $75

1st Place:          $125

The 1st place design will be published on the KSDE website and featured in the conference materials.  All winners will be recognized at the Opening Session of the Annual Conference on October 22, 2020.
