YAM '18 State Celebration March 9th at Noon Capitol Building in Madison
Our 2018 Youth Art Month Ceremony is t Saturday, March 9th at the Capitol and includes some truly incredible pieces of art from our Wisconsin students. We are so lucky to have such talented students and teachers in Wisconsin! The judges had a very difficult time selecting the awards this year, as there were so many amazing works to choose from. Congratulations to all of our winners!
Join us on Friday, March 9th, for our State Show Ceremony at 12:00 noon. This will truly be our biggest YAM show yet! We will be giving out 47 awards, Paul Soglin, the Mayor of Madison, will be there to present his awards; Rebecca Kleefisch, Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor will be there to present the Governor's Award; Kris Bakke will present the Nasco Awards and Scott Jones, Special Assistant to the Wisconsin State Superintendent will present the DPI Awards. We will conclude with a 5th Quarter performance by members of the UW Marching Band. Be sure to wear your Badger Red! I have a special Badger themed gift for each of the students with art on display as well! It will be an amazing day!
Also note that students with work on display will receive a ticket to visit the Madison Children's Museum with their families that day (one ticket allows the whole family to visit). If you need a ticket as a teacher, please stop at registration to get one.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let me know!
