Student Art Street Banner Program

Updated: Apr 12, 2023

Are you a student in the Bennington area? Are you an artist? Would you like to share your art?

The Design Committee of the Better Bennington Corporation is accepting submissions to be considered for the new upcoming Street Banners and we want YOU to create something spectacular! All submissions will be juried and the selected pieces will adorn our new set of Downtown Street Banners that usually last for a couple of seasons.

We have selected a group of people to jury the art and 48 pieces will be chosen. ALL submitted student art will appear on our website with the name, school, and age of the student. We will have a ceremony to unveil the banners to celebrate the chosen artists and have them sign their banners before they fly above our beautiful downtown.

The application is here.

Where will your money go?

  • Paying for the production of the banners;

  • Awarding the chosen students with $100 Downtown dollars IF we can raise enough funds!

  • Marketing the project;

  • Awarding one lucky artist with a $200 gift certificate from a blind drawing to Jay's Art Supplies;

  • Being the recipient of one of the banners when it reaches the end of its shelf life if one of the first people to donate $200 or more.

  • The first to donate $200 or more will automatically receive a banner when they are retired in two years. (48 total)

  • If you donate $500 or more, you automatically receive two banners when they are retired in two years.
