Since 1941, Rockford Art Museum has celebrated the strength and diversity of art programs at public, private and home schools in our area through the annual Young Artist Show student exhibition. The High School Division is a juried competition that features exceptional pieces by students in grades 9–12 within 50 miles of RAM, and the Youth Division showcases art by K–8 students in Winnebago County. Teachers and anyone 18 and under receive FREE admission to RAM throughout the Young Artist Show (March 3–May 5).
