Our Theme: Roots and Routes

MASBA-member districts are invited to paint the town red (or blue or yellow) at our annual conference! All districts may bring three high school student artworks for display at our hosting hotel: The Westin Riverwalk, San Antonio. Student artwork will be judged by an invited artist to determine first, second, and third place — all three of which will receive grants to support their artistic careers! Read through the contest rules and restrictions here.

Selection & Submission

Districts are responsible for adjudicating their student artwork. We recommend the creation or use of existing Selection Committees. Teachers are invited to participate and we provide a sample lesson plan for those who wish to include it in their instruction. Artwork release forms (required for district entry) can be found here

Artwork must be two-dimensional, flat (e.g., no stretched canvas or relief work) and can be no larger than 24” x 36″. Adhering to dimensions is crucial for purposes of uniformity. Member districts are responsible for transporting their art piece(s) to the 2024 MASBA conference.

Interested member districts must confirm their intent to participate by emailing pedro@masbatx.org before May 10th

Our contest contains a digital submission portion for organizing purposes. District coordinators must submit student artwork through our Google Form by August 16th. Before completing the entry form, please have ready a digital copy of student artwork and parent information.
