Rockford Art Museum's Young Artist Show has been a Rockford tradition since it began in 1941. Students in public, private and home schools are eligible to participate in this annual show that is consistently the most popular exhibition of the year. The highly competitive juried High School Division is open to students in grades 9–12 within 50 miles of RAM; this year's jurors are Michael Barnes and Jason Judd. The subsequent Youth Division displays features grades K–8 in Winnebago County; respective teachers select artwork for inclusion in the show.
