About the Visual Arts Contest...
The annual Culture Shapers Visual Arts Contest enables student artists to compete for more than $70,000 in cash prizes in six categories... drawing, painting, electronic media, mixed media, photography and sculpture. The contest takes place in the Fall, and is open to all High School Students in Harris, Waller, Liberty, Chambers, Galveston, Brazoria, Fort Bend and Montgomery counties.
Students receive a commemorative t-shirt with their entry fee. Entry forms will be e-mailed to the teacher after online registration. Teachers or students deliver and pickup the entries at the drop-off location at Westfield High School.
Each year, the Culture Shapers Volunteer Staff receive about 1,500 entries! This year, jurying will take place on Sunday, October 31st. The top ten finalists in each category are personally invited to the exclusive Awards Banquet on Wednesday, December 8th at Shirley Acres, where the winners are finally announced before a live audience!
About the Culture Shapers Jurying Process...
Culture Shapers jurors are a combination of educators and professionals, who come highly recommended to us by other notable organizations, such as the Visual Arts Scholastic Event (VASE), as well as others. Many of our jurors have experience both in and out of the classroom, which gives them a unique and valuable perspective on evaluating student artwork.
