Art is Power Art as Activism Poster Contest for High School Students

Leading Ladies would like to invite your students to participate in the 2024 Art as Activism Poster Contest for high school students in northern Massachusetts, specifically in Middlesex and Essex Counties. This year’s theme is encouraging people to vote.

The contest is sponsored by Leading Ladies, a nonpartisan North Shore group dedicated to social justice and the importance of voting. We believe in art as activism and that art can be an especially effective way for students to find their voices.

Important details about this year’s contest:
  • All entries must be designed to encourage people to vote in the upcoming 2024 elections
  • Entries can be directed at a general audience, or a particular group (women, people with disabilities, BIPOC, LGBTQ+, Asian Americans, etc.)
  • Entries must be able to be posted electronically as well as printed
  • Entries will be judged by a panel of professional artists and art educators
  • The top three poster submissions will receive cash prizes
  • A group of the top entries and honorable mentions will be displayed this spring and summer at Beverly’s Arts Fest; The Mayor’s Gallery in Beverly City Hall; and other venues TBD
  • Submissions are due by April 14, 2024 and can be submitted here via google form
  • Winners will be announced on May 1, 2024
