Celebrate the Arts

The Wisconsin 4-H Foundation Celebrates the Arts is a series of activities, including a contest and art auction, to be held annually for the purpose of:

-Promoting 4-H Arts Programming
-Raising Funds to Support 4-H Art Programs
-Telling the 4-H Story
-Raising Awareness of the WI 4-H Foundation and the 4-H Program


Proceeds from any Celebrate the Arts events will be split evenly with half invested in the Talen Endowment for 4-H Arts Programming and half used for arts programming in the next 4-H program year.

Celebrate the Arts 4-H Art Contest: 

The Wisconsin 4-H Foundation will sponsor the art contest, open to any current Wisconsin 4-H member, with cash prizes totaling nearly $1,000.  The contest will be held virtually, with photos of all entries submitted electronically. Although the contest is virtual, the winning art, selected to be in the art auction, from each category and the Best of Show must be delivered to the nearest 4-H Office or the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation.  These items will become the property of the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation and will not be returned.
Entry Information:

Entries will be accepted from Tuesday, September 1, 2020, until midnight on Tuesday, November 1, 2020.

A photo of the entry and the completed entry form must be submitted through the contest submission form: https://forms.gle/FCQSKVBowpru5J7H7

A tip sheet for entrants is available. Please review this information to learn how best to present and share your art.

Each artist may submit one entry in one or more categories but may submit only one entry in any one category. Example: Fred can submit a photo, a chalk drawing, and a ceramic dish, but he cannot enter two photos.

What happened to the Youth Leader projects?
  • In 2.0 all youth can select a volunteer-type when selecting a project, so a separate project selection for Youth Leader is no longer needed.  Youth can still select Youth leadership as a project.   
What happened to the Leader - Adult Advisor to Other Leaders, Leader - Board Member, Leader - Club Activity, etc projects?
  • These were removed because adults use another area to designate their role(s).  If they don’t choose a volunteer role as Project Leader, they do not select a project at all.
