Inspirations Art Competition

An art program for ALL students

The Hero In Me

This year's theme is "The Hero In Me". Students may submit one entry per category. Please read through the entire flyer for important information, dates and rules.

General Rules

Every child can submit one entry for each of the nine categories at the school level. So every child could have nine different entries. Each entry must be accompanied by an Inspirations Entry Form.

The first and second place winners in each category and age group will be sent on to the regional competition.

All participants are required to fill out, in its entirety, and sign the Inspirations’ Entry
Form. Students who have not completely filled out the form will not be eligible for the program. The school Inspirations committee should review the entry forms and allow students the opportunity to complete any entry
forms prior to school level judging. In situations where a student cannot fill out the entry form or write legibly, a
parent can fill out the form and sign her/his child’s name.

Each entry must be the original work of one student only. They may not have assistance from teachers, parents, or friends unless there is a special case (such as for someone with a visual or physical disability). Because the program is designed to encourage and recognize each student’s individual creativity, help from an adult or collaboration with other students is not allowed.

All of the entries must be original works. Use of copyrighted material is prohibited. Do not borrow from
copyrighted material. Plagiarism is defined as taking and using another person’s ideas or writings or inventions as
one’s own. Plagiarized entries will be disqualified and returned to the student.

Entries must be related to the yearly theme. There is no wrong way to interpret the theme.

Entries must comply with the General Inspirations Rules as well as the corresponding category
rules. Please refer to the individual category rules before submitting an entry to ensure compliance. All rules may be found on our blog: If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Inspirations advisor at your school.
