Art Showcase

 Art Showcase is a competition that recognizes both the best individual artists and best art programs in North Carolina schools. An unlimited number of students in each school may participate in the school-level competition. Students are presented with a prompt and given about one month to create their submission. Media categories include painting, drawing, collage, photography, and other creative efforts. Electronic copies of submissions are sent to NCASA and forwarded to judges. Submissions from top teams and students from each category advance to the State Finals and are evaluated by judges in a live exhibition.
