Teacher/Student Conference Art Show
Every year at the KyAEA Fall Conference, there is an AMAZING student show that exhibits everything students have created thus far! This year is no different, but additional instructions will be added separately in an additional post. This WILL be a *VIRTUAL* show. Please also note that the cost to participate in the student/teacher show is $10, to be paid at the time of registration.
This is a chance to sing the praises of your students and gain some instant recognition for them! Along with the student show, teachers have the option to submit some of their own work into a teacher competition which adds a fun element into the process.
Upon purchase of the Teacher/Student Show voucher, you'll be emailed a virtual template to upload your student work into. Once returned, all of the entries will be combined into one large show presentation.
You must register and pay for conference and the teacher/student show to be eligible to participate by October 2nd. Any payments for teacher/student show after this date will be deemed as a donation to KyAEA and are ineligible to participate in the show due to time constraints for the virtual submission.
