Program Details

Young artists get involved through Wilburton Elementary PTA. A student may submit an entry in any of six arts areas. Only original works of art are accepted.

Participation is organized by student age and grade levels. Student works are critiqued against others in the same grade division. This allows recognition and judging of artworks by appropriate developmental age and skill levels. The grade divisions are:

  • Primary: Preschool – Grade 2
  • Intermediate: Grades 3 – 5

Entries are judged on creative ability and interpretation of the theme. The program is structured to recognize students at the local, council, state, and national levels. Entries are first judged at the local level and selected works are chosen to represent the Wilburton PTA at each subsequent level.
