Student Artwork

The BOOST Student Hall of Fame features student artwork from all over the globe and is a magnificent display of visual arts (physical and digital art pieces) to share with over 3,500 global educators throughout the conference. Seeing the artwork and walking through the gallery reminds us of why we do this work and celebrates the incredible talent that we see in our youth every day. We would love to highlight the amazing and creative work of your students.

Student Artwork Submission Forms

  Coming Soon

Student Hall of Fame Guidelines

Goal: Our annual goal is to have 800+ pieces of student artwork.

Theme: There is no theme for artwork submissions. We want the students to be able to use their full creativity—we are looking forward to seeing what they create!

Physical artwork submissions can include:

  • Visual art: paintings, drawings, sketches, cartoons, photographs, collages, etc.
  • Written word: stories, poems, prose, etc.
  • A student idea (as long as it fits on a 22” x 28” inch poster board).
  • Sculpture pieces are welcome, but they must be hand-delivered.

Submission Guidelines:

  • All artwork must have the name and grade of each student who was involved in the creation of the piece as well as the name of the program and the city and state.
  • You can send us the artwork as is- this can be mounted on posterboard or not. 
  • Maximum dimensions of artwork: 22” x 28”. Please note we will not have any electrical outlets available to us for any of the artwork. 

Here is how it works:

1. Please complete a Submission Form and return it to us no later than March 15, 2025. Submissions will be accepted until we have all 800 slots filled. You will receive an email confirmation that your submission has been accepted.

2. You are responsible for ensuring that the artwork gets delivered to the conference. Options include the following:

Option 1: Mail to: LACOE, 9300 Imperial Highway, Attn: Expanded Learning Technical Assistance Unit, ECW Cubicle 3202, Downey, CA 90242. Artwork must be received by April 1, 2025.

Option 2: Deliver to: The Los Angeles County Office of Education Expanded Learning Technical Assistance Unit. Please call our Administrative team at 562-922-6269 and let them know that you are bringing artwork so they can provide you with instructions for delivery. Artwork must be received by April 1, 2025.

3. The LACOE Expanded Learning Technical Assistance Unit will transport all artwork from their office to Palm Springs, CA. Please note we are unable to bring artwork back to LA after the conference.

4. The BOOST Conference assumes no responsibility for the art pieces and will not be returning any artwork at the end of the conference. Pieces must remain up in the Student Artwork Hall of Fame until 8:30AM on Friday, May 2, 2025. Participating programs can reclaim art pieces on Friday, May 2, 2025, between 8:30AM-9:30AM at the conference. All pieces not claimed by 9:30AM that day will be donated

Students and programs that donate artwork will be recognized in the final BOOST Conference program, on the BOOST Conference website, and during the BOOST Conference.

STAR, Inc., an after school program in Los Angeles, CA, is donating the use of their art gallery display along with the staff to hang and arrange the artwork. Thanks, STAR, Inc.
