Each year, the National Art Education Association and the Virginia Art Education Association (VAEA) sponsor a flag design contest for all states. The contest is in celebration of Youth Art Month (YAM). Hundreds of art students submit designs in each state competition. Submissions are judged according to rubrics at each of the three school levels. One winning design is chosen from each state. First- through fourth-place winners are also chosen for each level.

Entries are evaluated based on a rubric. According to VAEA submissions guidelines, students are to produce

  • a bold, creative design using any 2-D art supplies and incorporate the YAM logo,
  • imagery to represent Virginia, the state’s name,
  • imagery to represent art,
  • and the theme “Take a Journey through Art.”

Composition and craftsmanship are also considered.
