The Florida State Fair is so much more than rides, midway food & livestock exhibitions! More than 450,000 visitors are expected to come to the 2019 Florida State Fair. Many of those individuals come primarily to see the various exhibits that will be on display.
The highlight of the Fair’s Youth Art Competitions is the Art Portfolio Contest for High School Seniors. This is an excellent opportunity for you to showcase your artwork, build your resume and of course win scholarship money for continuing your education.

This year we are fortunate to have the Florida Lottery as our sponsor. The Florida Lottery is the primary funding source for the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship program and is responsible for sending over 775,000 students to college in Florida.
A special acknowledgement to Juried Art Services, for their support and sponsorship.
A total of $10,000 in scholarship money will be awarded this year!
First Place: $3500 • Second Place: $2500 • 4 Awards of Merit: $1000 each
