Student Literary Entry Form

Entries for the 2018 Festival of Arts will be received beginning in the Fall of 2017


The Student Literary Division is open to high school students of Forsyth County. There is no fee for entry. Cash awards are given for both Literature and Visual Art: First Prizes – $250, Second Prizes – $150, Third Prizes – $100. There will be two literary and three art categories available for students to enter: Literature

  • Poetry – Any form of poetry submission.
  • Short Story – Any genre of short story.
  • Students should upload files in Word format. (.doc or .docx extension) Other formats such as PDF are not accepted.
  • Only one entry per student, please
  • PLEASE NOTE: Plagiarism is a very serious offense and is almost assured to be discovered. Do not submit work that is not your own.

Visual Art

  • 2 Dimensional – paintings, drawings, digital, etc. High resolutions pictures are necessary. Take care to reduce glare and remove extraneous surfaces such as frames or stands from the submitted image.
  • 3 Dimensional – sculpture, ceramics, carving, etc. Please remember that proper staging when submitting an image is as important as the work itself.
  • Photography – work must not be altered in any significant way beyond color adjustment. Photographs put through “filters” or that are significantly altered with the use of a computer should be entered as digital art.
  • Works should be submitted in .jpg, .jpeg or .png format.
  • Only one entry per student, please

Please note that images and text that are submitted should be for general audiences. Violent or explicit material may be disqualified from consideration.

The literary event is scheduled to take place every other year and will return in 2018.
