Students can create as many projects as they like, in as many arts categories as they like.

The six arts categories are:

On a National Level

In the 2015-2016 school year, nearly 300,000 students in over 8,000 schools across the country and in U.S. schools overseas contributed their original works to be considered for PTA’s highest honor in the arts. This past spring, a panel of experts reviewed more than 1,000 national round submissions.  206 of the most creative works were honored from the 2015-16 school year.
