History:

On May 14th, 2019 Governor Doug Ducey signed SB1111 State Seal of Arts Proficiency into law. On August 26th, the Arizona State Board of Education voted to open rulemaking on this law. Currently, the State Seal of Arts Proficiency has entered into a 60 day public comment process. If the measure becomes official board rule after this 60 day period, it will recognize graduating seniors who meet the minimum requirements as soon as THIS YEAR 2020!

Call for Designers:

The Arizona Department of Education Office of Arts Education will be featuring an original student design on the State Seal of Arts Proficiency which would be affixed to the diploma of graduates who meet the minimum requirements.

Each school may submit the online application for up to 2 students per grade level 9-12. Each student entry will require a separate application. Designs must be created and uploaded using the Arts Proficiency Seal Design Form.

  • Two Colors: Submit black and white designs or designs utilizing two colors only.
