Arts-Integrated Lesson Plan Contest
Cash Prizes Available for Winners!
Do you have a lesson plan that has inspired your students? Have you used art in your classroom to engage your
students in a creative way? Then submit your best lesson plan to our contest and you could win a cash prize!
Eligible lesson plans must be arts-integrated. This means those arts and non-arts standards are addressed equally
and the connection between the subjects are naturally and authentic. The lesson plan can incorporate any art
form, such as dance, music, theater or visual arts. It can be of any length of class time or any age group. Please
include Ohio arts and non-arts standards that are addressed in the plan.
Lesson plans will be judged by Young Audiences staff and volunteers. We will be looking for lesson plans that
are creative, innovative, easy to use and simple.
Each plan must include
• Your name, address, phone, email
• Your school or organization’s name
• Lesson title
• Grade level(s)
• Non-arts subject area(s)
• Art form(s)
• Brief description of lesson
• Resources needed
• Non-arts objectives (include state standards)
• Art objective (include state standards)
• Procedures (detailed description of how to execute this lesson)
Although it is not required, entrants might also consider including a rubric to assess student learning and an
explanation of how your lesson plan met state standards.
We will publish the best lesson plans online and make them available to other educators as a community
resource. The top winners will receive a $100 cash prize and be recognized at Young Audiences’ annual
Showcase event on April 10, 2008.
A sample lesson plan and format can be viewed on Young Audiences’ website at: www.yaneo.org in the
