Poster Contest Information

Students:

This is a wonderful opportunity for students with interest in art and graphic design to show what they can do! Winners' work will be displayed in every building in the Canyons School District as well as multiple social media outlets. For students this can be an opportunity to gain design experience and build their resumes.

Teachers:

Please help us spread the word about this opportunity, and encourage your students to participate. Creating an entry for this category would particularly benefit students who are interested in art and graphic design. Since there is no theme assigned to the Film Festival, you can have your students create posters as part of your classroom curriculum, tying the contest into any lessons you are teaching about various art forms and mediums.
