Students are going to have competitions with everything in life. Students
need this to excel. It motivate my students to try harder. Every art
competition show is different, depends on the juror and the type of show.
I'm only speaking from a senior high school point of view. I believe as
art educators can tell if a students work is going to have a chance in a
show or not. Students need constructive critism omong their peers.

Two of my questions are: 1. What should a teacher do when a student creates psychologically disturbing or "inappropriate" art? This question raises issues around censorship vs. the "therapeutic" value of free expression. Our local schools have rules prohibiting any gang symbolism in art, for example. But what about a depressed student reaching out through his/her art to express self destructive imagery?
