Student Video Competition: Scottsdale Arts and the City of Scottsdale Celebrate Youth Art Month!

From Natalie Marsh, Director of Arts Education- Scottsdale Arts:


Hi friends,
As you may know, Diane Douglas, Superintendent of Public Instruction of the State of Arizona, made an official proclamation of March 2018 as Arizona Youth Arts Month.
In celebration of this, we are collaborating with the City of Scottsdale on a video contest asking high school students attending a school in Scottsdale or residents of Scottsdale to tell us why the arts are important to our community. The award is pretty awesome – $500 cash, membership to Scottsdale Arts, accolades at a city council meeting and free breakfast!
You can find the details here: http://www.scottsdaleaz.gov/council/i-love-the-arts-video-contest. It is also on Peach Jar for those of you in the SUSD system.
Please share this contest with all your high school teachers, parents of high school students, and high school students! We want to hear how the arts have impacted them and why the arts make Scottsdale the best. Contest closes on March 23, 2018.
Thank you for spreading the word!
Natalie Marsh
