While most Youth and Student Entry Submissions are by Art Teachers in traditional public and private schools, and Art Schools, we have found that there are a small number of youth and students who are residents of Marblehead but are involved less traditional Art education. This online form below is for those young people. The Individual Youth and Student Site Closes at 3:00 pm on June 12, 2015.
