2018 Arts Week Poster Contest:
“The Arts Make History Come Alive”

Illinois is celebrating its Bicentennial (1818-2018) and we want you to be a part of the celebration.  Let’s help make a statement that the arts have had an important impact on the history and life of the people of Illinois and beyond.
Illinois Arts Education Week will be March 12-18, 2018 and is sponsored by the Illinois State Board of Education in conjunction with the IAEA and the Governor’s Office. The contest is open to all students in grades K-8 this year. The three winners will receive recognition at the 70th annual Illinois Art Education Association (IAEA) Fall Conference in December 2018. The first place winner will be recognized at the March 2018 Illinois State Board of Education board meeting.
Copies of the entry/authorization form can be printed here or at isbe.net.  If you have any questions please contact the Illinois State Board of Education’s College and Career Readiness Division at (217) 524-4832, or email Cornelia Powell at cpowell@isbe.net who is the IAEW Poster Contest Coordinator. Entries must be postmarked by December 12, 2017.  Let’s show that the arts do make a difference!
