Students can win awards and go on to the county, state, and national levels. Students may enter up to three pieces of art in each category. Categories are grouped by grade divisions and are judged on the following criteria:
Interpretation – How closely the piece relates to the theme, based on the artwork itself and the artist statement.

Creativity – How creative and original the piece is in its conception of the theme and its presentation.

Technique – The level of skill demonstrated in the basic principles/techniques of the arts area.
