Remaining State Finalists win $200.

The online competition will conclude May 21, 2021, and students will be notified of the results on that date.

Students may have the opportunity, subject to scheduling and availability, to have their artwork displayed in their home state’s capitol building and meet with their governor.

To enter, students submit an Entry Form and a digital copy (PNG, JPG, PDF, BMP, TIF) of their artwork via email to WGAart@westgov.org. Please read the Rules before entering and email any questions to WGAart@westgov.org.
