2017 Report to the Community Cover Art Competition

Deadline EXTENDED! February 3, 2017

Student artwork has been on the front and back covers of our annual Report to the Community on Public School Progress since 2010. This publication is distributed to over 60,000 households and can be found at libraries, schools and local elected officials offices across Pittsburgh and on the A+ Schools website.

Guidelines for Your Art, Our Schools Cover Art Competition

Students from Pittsburgh’s public and public charter schools are invited to submit an original work of art to be considered for the front or back cover of our 2017 Report. Eligible work would consist of a full color drawing, painting, color pastel or original print touching on the themes of schools, education, neighborhoods, or student lives. Works do not need to be new for the competition. Previously created work is encouraged.

Students should feel free to submit works of art previously created that they believe would work on the cover of our report. Please read the attached guidelines for more information.

A jury of local artists, curators and community leaders will judge the submissions and pick ten (10) finalists from students grades PreK-12.

• All finalists will receive $25 and will be invited to a public event in April during which guests will vote for winning entries.
• The student with the winning submission will receive $100 gift card and their work will be on the cover of the 2017 Report to the Community on Public School Progress.


Complete the form below or print out the guidelines to mail in your submission. You can also share your submission on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook using the hashtag #yourartourschools. We look forward to seeing your creative talent on display.
