Elementary School Poster Contest

NCSBA is asking elementary school students to express their thoughts and ideas to tell What’s Super About Public Schools.  Member elementary schools are invited to submit a poster that conveys the contest theme.  There are two submission categories: kindergarten through second grade (K-2) and third through fifth grade (3-5).


The contest is open to NCSBA member district elementary schools. NCSBA is the professional organization that represents 116 local boards of education in North Carolina.  It is a member-driven association that supports the school governance team – school board members, superintendents, senior administrative staff, and board assistants – in its complex leadership role. The association helps develop, communicate, and advocate for the perspective of North Carolina school districts.

  • Poster completed by an elementary (K-5) student only.

  • The following art mediums may be used: crayons, colored pencils, watercolors, acrylic or poster paint, and/or markers.
