Student Art Contest

As teachers, parents and students look for ways to stay stimulated and engaged in learning, we know the vital role art can play. That's why we have adapted our Student Art Contest to work for the unique needs of all students, whether school takes place in person, with distance learning, or a hybrid solution.

How It Works

Students choose any medium and create an original work of art (no reproductions, please). They can use whatever materials are available at home or school, or shop a wide variety of art supplies available to order. Email an image of the artwork along with the completed release form to artshare@schoolspecialty.com. Submissions can be made by students themselves or by teachers on their behalf. All grade levels are eligible to enter.

What Featured Artists Receive


We'll select one featured artist every month who will receive:

  • $250 merchandise certificate for themselves
  • $250 merchandise certificate for the teacher who inspired them
  • Featured space on our website and across social media
