Video Contest

MAAE Video Contest

The Missouri Alliance for Arts Education is seeking powerful video messages which underscore the importance of arts education. Open to adults and students, MAAE is looking for current or future filmmakers, media moguls or roving TV reporters to enter a video contest highlighting the importance of arts education in Missouri schools.

The MAAE is dedicated to showing why it is important to have fine arts instruction in every school, for every child, every day. We draw attention to the creative skills the arts develop in people of all ages and backgrounds. Now students can join in the Alliance's advocacy mission and display, through video, why the arts are a vital part of education at every level.
