Since 1985, the High School Art Competition has been an extraordinary opportunity for talented eleventh- and twelfth-grade students throughout North Texas to exhibit their best works in mixed media, printmaking, photography, drawing, three-dimensional art, painting, and computer design. The competition has hundreds of entries each year, from many school districts. For many students, this is their only opportunity to compete with their peers. These are the young people who will influence our environment in the 21st century. They will be not only the painters, potters and sculptors of the future, but also the designers of our clothes, our cars, our homes and our lifestyles. Our environment will be enhanced by nurturing and encouraging these future artists. Students in the following counties are eligible to enter this juried competition: Cooke, Denton, Erath, Hood, Johnson, Palo Pinto, Parker, Somervell, Tarrant and Wise.
