Annual High School Exhibition

Since 2014, AMOCA has hosted an annual juried exhibition showcasing the remarkable talents of high school students studying the ceramic arts.

I’ve had students participate in [the high school ceramics exhibition] over the years, and I’ve had a couple get honorable mentions…it’s such a great thing to be able to participate in. This year [2020], they did the awards show online, and that in and of itself was a great resource because I’ve been able to share it with my classes and show them the work that other high school students around the country and around our county make. It’s been a great resource for me.

2021 Annual High School Ceramics Exhibition

  • An annual exhibition juried by AMOCA’s curatorial team
  • Like the exhibition in 2020, the exhibition this year will be digital
  • Submissions accepted March 1–21
  • Notifications sent April 2
  • Exhibition opens on May 1 at 12 PM

This year more than ever, we believe students deserve to be honored for making work, and teachers deserve to be honored for educating those students despite the difficult circumstances of distance learning. That is why, for the first time, we will be expanding the annual High School Ceramics Exhibition to include teachers and students from anywhere in the country (the miracles of technology!).

In the past, to allow for more equal access, we have allowed submissions of work using air dry clay. For this year only, submissions of work using oven bake/polymer clay will also be accepted.

For this year’s digital exhibition, only images of the accepted works will be accepted (no need to physically ship the work here). If your students are unfamiliar with photographing their work, we’ve produced a short tutorial video with helpful photography tips and tricks.

When submissions open on March 1, applicants (or teachers, or parents!) should click the link below to learn more about and begin the submissions process.
