Registration Open for Teen Arts Festival

The 2022 Gloucester and Salem County Teen Arts Festival will be virtually adjudicated through an online contest portal. Students are also invited to perform and exhibit on-site at Appel Farm for our May 21st Arts Fest!

Who can participate?

Middle (13+) and high school students, or the age/grade equivalent, from public, charter, parochial, or home school organizations in Gloucester and Salem Counties in New Jersey may participate. In most cases, a coordinator from the school will register, and work with teachers to enter students’ work. Students: If your school does not register, you can register as an individual entrant. Individual entrants who are under the age of 18 should register with a parent/guardian listed as the coordinator. Individual entrants who are 18+ should register with themselves listed as the coordinator. Individual entrants will enter their own work.
