400 University Drive, West Bend
*Note participants aren’t required to be present the entire time.
This event is an opportunity for youth to display their talents and skills in 9 different communication and arts categories. Review the general information and class details to see all the options. The festival is also a great chance for youth to experience and practice face-to-face judging in many categories and receive valuable feedback on their work.
Most categories are judged at the event but posters and writing are judged ahead of time so you don’t need to actually be at the event. Youth don’t need to be enrolled in a particular project in order to participate so it’s a great opportunity to try out something new. Youth can try out Irish Dance during one of the two interactive workshops from 8:30-9:00 am or 9:30-10:00 am. There is no requirement to participate in any other part of the event to do the workshop.
Fast and easy sign up is being done through a Google Form. Enter your general information and select the categories you’d like to participate in. When done, select “submit” and you’ll receive a confirmation. If you need assistance, call the UW-Extension Office, 262-335-4478.
Registration closes Monday, March 6. Note poster and writing entries are due on March 6 as well. The same form is being used to register for the Irish Dance workshop (pre-registration is preferred, but not required for the workshop).
Times are approximate based on the number of entries.

Regardless if this is your first time participating in a particular class or you’ve done it many times before, review these tips sheets to help prepare and improve your work.
Judging Score Sheets
It’s important to review the score sheets judges will use so you know the criteria they are measuring on when critiquing your work. This will allow you to best prepare for the experience and know what to focus on.
