After much discussion, The Rose Festival and Chalk It Up Committees have decided to divide the competition into more age levels instead of judging within the original three categories. This will allow us to award prizes for both first and second-place winners. All mediums are accepted including: oil, acrylic, charcoal, ink, pastel, pencil, photography, fiber, pottery, etc.


  • Grades Pre K-2nd
  • Grades 3-5
  • Grades 6-8
  • Grades 9-12
  • Adult 19 – 59
  • Senior (60+),

Contest Registration Change: Instead of submitting an intention to participate right now and before anyone’s art is finished, this year we ask entrants to register once they have a specific piece of art in mind that they plan to submit for the contest. You will be asked to provide a specific title and media for that piece of art. The registration form will be live beginning July 1, 2023.

Because of this change, anyone interested in participating that would like to get a reminder email on July 1 is welcome to submit their name and email address on the following form. We will send an email as soon as the registration form is live.
