Democracy Collection Student Art Competition: Call for Artwork
The National Art Education Association, alongside the Art is Embassies office at the US Department of State, is pleased to announce the call for artwork for the Democracy Collection Student Art Competition. Showcasing the artwork of talented middle school and high school student artists ages 13-18, this competition provides an opportunity for students to explore democracy through the creation of art.

The Democracy Collection Student Art Competition submission and jurying process will be completely virtual. Up to 30 works of art will be jury selected for inclusion in the virtual exhibition featured on the NAEA website.
