Student Battle

The 2020 high school event will involve two battles – one for painters and one for three-dimensional artists. Participating schools are invited to bring up to 25 guests to watch the competition, which will take place 9 to 11 a.m. on Friday, April 3. The competition is open to 12 competitors per medium, and each student will receive a $50 cash stipend for participating.


We are currently recruiting for the April 3, 2020 student battle. Schools may nominate one student for each medium for the competition, but there are only 24 total spots available — making entry into Versus available on a first-come, first-served basis. Contact Madeline Janzen at
