    For Educators

    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

                                       • 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
