Art Competition

The Superintendent’s Art Competition

The Superintendent’s Art Competition promotes the arts through the purchase of exceptional K-12 student artwork to add to the Central Kitsap School District Art Collection.

At the end of the school year, the superintendent puts out a call for submissions to the school district. Submission forms and instructions will be made available at that time.

Up to three pieces of student artwork may be purchased from the following categories, priced per piece as follows: 

  • High School, $100
  • Middle School, $75
  • Elementary School, $50

Students holding their winning pieces of Art.

Art is pre-screened by the student’s school art teacher or liaison. Selected work moves forward to the district level to be judged by a local artist, the superintendent, and third judge of the superintendent’s choice. The winning works of art are displayed in the superintendent’s office for one year before being displayed permanently in the hallways of the Administration Center.

A wide-range of media of watercolor, acrylic, oil, ink, digital-illustration, color-pencil, pastels, torn-paper, mixed-media and pottery are used in their creative process. Currently, the collection contains 85 pieces of student artwork.
