Conference Program Cover Design Contest
Each year, we invite students to design the cover for the annual Conference Program. The art will be shared on the web and in print and will be viewed by tons of educators and guests.
The Conference theme is announced in the fall each year, in advance of the spring Conference event. We begin accepting entries for the Conference in September, with an early spring deadline.
Entries will be decided by committee, and the winning design will become the cover for the Conference program and on other event materials. We’re proud to feature student art so prominently at our annual #AltEd event, full of educators and administrators from across California.
We also showcase more student art at the Conference venues, so teachers and students still have a chance to display these entries and all other works. Learn how to submit artwork for the Student Art Showcase below.

Student Art Showcase
Bring your student art to the Conference!
