Annual Youth Art Competition

November 18, 2023 - December 30, 2023

With the holiday season swiftly approaching, we are excited to announce this year’s Annual Youth Art Competition. 

This exhibition is open to K-10 students living in Utah Valley. We ask for your support in announcing and publicizing this upcoming exhibition. Many schools offer this to students along with similar events such as the PTA Reflections Art Contest and allow students to enter one or both at their parents’ discretion.

This year's Youth Art Competition will be displayed in conjunction with both the 37th Annual Spiritual and Religious Art of Utah and The Most Noble Subject. As such, the prompt for this year's exhibition explores the concept of inspiration. We encourage students to consider the following when exploring possible subject matter:

    -        Where do you find inspiration?

    -        Why do you create?

    -        What do you think makes life meaningful?

The exhibition will be located in the Ingrid Nemelka Gallery on the Main Floor of the Museum from November 18, 2023 through December 30, 2023. The Museum will select a number of works to be included in the exhibition. Of those selected for display, a small number will be chosen for cash prizes!
