2023 4-H Visual Arts Festival – Call for Entries

Attention Washington County youth artists: are you looking for an opportunity to share your artwork with the community? If so, the 2023 4-H Visual Arts Festival is an opportunity you’re not going to want to miss!  

Youth in grades 3-13 from Washington, Ozaukee, and Fond du Lac Counties are invited to participate in this fun, free, virtual event. This event is sponsored by 4-H, however, youth are not required to be 4-H members to participate. This year’s theme is “Local Inspiration”. Wisconsin has many interesting and beautiful places to capture. Be inspired by the places you live, work and play. This could be a town, city, park, school, your home, or any other local places. 

We are excited to have two new categories for submissions: Fabric and Digital Media. Other categories include Drawing, Painting, Photography, and Other Media

Entries are accepted now through March 1, 2023. Multiple submissions are welcome! Prizes will be awarded for each category. 

Submit artwork through 4-HOnline (https://v2.4honline.com/).
