Kentucky Derby Festival® Foundation Student Art Contest Presented by The Fillies, Inc.

The Kentucky Derby Festival recognizes the importance of public health and safety – it is always the Derby Festival’s top priority and we appreciate everything that is being done for all of us. We want to do our part as well, and with an abundance of caution, have decided to postpone the 2020 Kentucky Derby Festival until later in the year.

The schedule may look a little different as we move things into a new timeframe, but there will be a Thunder Over Louisville, a miniMarathon, a Pegasus Parade, and many other events in between. As you can imagine, there are a lot of moving parts, and once we get all the details finalized, we will release a new schedule.



About The Student Art Contest

The Kentucky Derby Festival Foundation Student Art Contest Presented by The Fillies, Inc. is open to students from public, private and parochial schools in all Kentucky counties, as well as Clark and Floyd counties in Indiana are invited to participate. Students who are not enrolled in art classes at their school may also create artwork at home, but entries must still follow all contest criteria and be submitted by the school.

Community art professionals serve as judges, awarding the winners of five divisions with medallions, certificates, and a Kentucky Derby Festival Student Art Contest Winner’s Pin.

First-place winners also receive a Derby Festival framed poster and get to ride in the Pegasus Parade.

The Student Art Contest is Presented by The Fillies, Inc., with Media Sponsor, ArtxFM.
