ArchOmaha Students Unite in Creativity!

Students, get a chance to represent your school and see your artwork displayed at Unite! You may also apply for a chance to perform your music at Unite.
 
Art Showcase
All Catholic school, Religious Ed. and homeschool students are invited to submit original, creative work with the theme of “UNITY.” Each school may then choose up to 3 submissions to be potentially displayed (space permitting) in the CHI Health Convention Center at Unite on June 8th. Submissions should be dropped off or sent to the Catholic Schools Office by May 1.

Submissions may be in the areas of art, graphic design, photography, poetry, and video.

Music Showcase
All Catholic school choirs and music ensembles are invited to participate by performing just outside of the CHI Health Center Arena at select times during the event. Apply using the online form by March 15, and we’ll choose 16 ensembles and give them designated time slot on June 8. Ensembles will be chosen and notified of their time slots by April 15.
