Read about the campaign and enter quickly the deadline is March 31st, 2013.

Parents, Students, and Teachers get involved to let your voices be heard in Sacramento about Why Art Matters? You may also share what you need for your local art programs.

The Campaign: The Student Voices campaign, launched by the California Alliance for Arts Education, invites students to share their answers to the question “Why do the arts matter?” with their elected officials. Unique, personal stories captured on video will provide Sacramento legislators with powerful evidence of the many ways that visual art, music, theater and dance empower and equip young people for a successful future. The campaign launches January 22, 2013 just as new elected officials take office and runs until runs until March 31, 2013.

Thanks to a generous donation from Adobe, the three videos with the most likes on the Student Voices Facebook page will be eligible to win free Adobe software for their school. For eligibility and rules click here.
