The Youth Collaboration Award, sponsored by Western Michigan University, gives K-12 students a platform to exhibit their work for thousands of ArtPrize visitors (that’s you!) to view. For the first time ever, ArtPrize Nine will feature 26 student-driven collaborative entries from schools across the state of Michigan. Schools and eligible education-based nonprofits serving K-12 youth were invited to participate by entering a collaborative piece, securing a venue and competing for the $5,000 cash prize. YOU will get to vote on the winner.
