• 2023 Verona Banner Art Contest

    Thank you to all the applicants who submitted beautiful artwork. The submission deadline was January 6, 2023 at 5 PM. A group of volunteers is reviewing each submission. Winners will be announced soon!

    For the past six years, the Verona Area Education Foundation (VAEF) has partnered with the City of Verona to create and install street pole banners downtown and on Verona Avenue. For 2023, new banners will be installed on East Verona Avenue to replace the current banners which have become weathered over time. The winning artwork will also be available to purchase on commemorative items (mugs, t-shirts, etc.) and removed banners will be transformed into useable art (tote bags, aprons, etc.). Click here for application information and materials - this will be updated in late 2023 for the 2024 competition.

    Funds raised through the banner program will help the VAEF continue supporting grant requests from district staff for unique and innovative educational opportunities for our students. To date, the foundation has awarded more than $110,000 in grants to district educators.
