The Chesapeake Public Schools Equity Council is proud to present its first Student Visual Arts Exhibition and Contest. The Council announced the opportunity in late January 2021 for kindergarten through twelfth grade students in the district. Students were challenged to create original artwork that is powerful, thought-provoking, and inspired by the theme: Lift Every Voice.
More than 200 entries were received virtually representing 45 of our schools and centers in the district. The artwork submitted showcased the diverse talents and perspectives of our students. Separated into three groups – elementary, middle, and high – judges are currently reviewing the art to determine first, second, and third place honors for each group. Winning pieces will be announced at the Monday, March 22, 2021, School Board Meeting.
