2018 High School All-State

The Kentucky High School All-State Art Competition is an annual, juried exhibition of the state's best student artists. Please take a moment and review the information packet to gain a better understanding as to how the show works.


All-State has two levels of competition, the regional level and the state level. Schools/teachers in each region submit to their regional show first, and then the top 20 pieces from each region move on to the state level show. At the State Level, there are two Best in Show pieces awarded to a 3D work and a 2D work. A small cash prize is awarded to the 1st Place winner in each category, and all 1st - 3rd place winners receive a free sketchbook. Regional winnings vary depending on location and budget.

If you have ANY questions about the All-State Art Show you may contact the state coordinator, Rachael Burriss at rachael.burriss@boone.kyschools.us OR your regional coordinator from the list below.
