Guidelines for 2021 High School Art Exhibition


Due to COVID, we won’t be able to have a reception. We will waive the entry fee, so we won’t have prizes that accompany the awards, but it will still be a show that is judged and a great addition to college applications. We have not missed a year in over 25 years, and we won’t let this stop us for 2021.



All eleventh and twelfth grade students in Cooke, Denton, Erath, Hood, Parker, Tarrant, Palo Pinto, Somervell, Wise, and Johnson counties are eligible to enter this juried competition.

Please send me the detail you would put on a tag for each entry



A list should include student name, school, teacher, title, division, description (so I can match with image).  If students wish to list prices, that is an option. If I get an inquiry, I’ll contact the teacher.




There is no cost this year. The maximum entries per student is three. Entry of a work is not a guarantee of acceptance.
