Calling all young artists—showcase your masterpieces for a chance to win!

The 2024 K12 Art Competition is here! Students across the country in grades K–12 can unleash their creativity, unveil their artistic talent, and explore new mediums for a share of $20,000 worth of prizes!

This year, in addition to traditional 2D physical art, we’ve added two new categories—digital and AI art. Students in each category will compete against peers in their grade bands (K–2, 3–5, 6–8, 9–12). 

The deadline to enter is March 25, 2024.

Pick Your Palette

Physical Art

This category includes any 2D art you create physically—drawing, painting, charcoal, collages, prints, and more. Semi-finalists in this category will be asked to mail their artwork to us for final review.

Digital Art

Students can submit digital illustrations, pixel art, and any art created using a computer, smartphone, tablet, or other technology to this category.
AI Art

AI art includes any image created using AI tools and will be judged based on the prompt entered into the AI software. You can use any program, but we recommend DALL-E, Midjourney, or starryai. Please note: We recommend parent discretion for any AI software, especially for students under age 13.
