    The deadline for entries for the 2021 Perry County Council of the Arts (PCCA) Youth Art Day is Monday, March 15, 2021. Categories include dance, music, drama, visual art, video, literature, and graphic design. Readers may submit entries online at perrycountyarts.org/youth-art day.  

    A $2 fee for each entry applies. Public, private, and home-schooled students residing in or attending school in Perry County are encouraged to participate. 

    Youth Art Day is an annual showcase of visual art, music, and literary talent from students or residents of Perry County in kindergarten through 12th grade. The event generally features a large student art exhibition, music and dance performances, literature readings, kids’ activities, an artist demonstration, and an awards ceremony. But, this year, Youth Art Day 2021 will be held virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

    Entries will be published on PCCA’s website at perrycountyarts.org/youth-art day and social media accounts on Saturday, May 15.  

    PCCA will also host a Director’s Choice exhibition, a selection of noteworthy student artwork from Youth Art Day 2021 chosen by PCCA Board of Directors, at PCCA Gallery, 1 S. Second St., Newport from June 19-July 17. 

    All digital entries, images and fees must be received by Monday, March 15, 2021
