Organizers are asking for artwork submissions from high school students for the High School Art Show, part of the Whitewater Main Street Festival, by Friday, June 15.

Any high school student in Wisconsin is eligible to submit artwork. Submission for two pieces is free. A festival representative will select one submission from each student to be on display. Those pieces will be eligible for the Best of Show award. Depending on available space, a student's second submission might also be on display.

Students will be notified by email or phone of which piece to deliver by Wednesday, Aug. 1, at Studio 84, 121 W. Center St., Whitewater.

The Best of Show award will be announced at a reception on Saturday, Sep. 15, during the festival. Downtown Whitewater, Studio 84, Whitewater Chamber and Whitewater Arts Alliance are organizing the event.
