ASBA Student Photography Contest

The ASBA Student Photography Contest recognizes student achievement in black-and-white and color photography. A selection committee chooses the winners, who are recognized at the ASBA-ASA Annual Conference in December.

Entries must be created by students in grades K-12 who are enrolled in an Arizona school district that is a member of the Arizona School Boards Association (view a list of member districts)

Winners will receive a certificate acknowledging the honor, a framed enlargement of their winning entry, and recognition during the opening ceremonies of the ASBA-ASA Annual Conference. Winning entries will also be published on the ASBA website and in the association’s member magazine. A monetary award will be presented to the school of contest winners in the 9-12 Category with the funds dedicated to support student photography.
