The Verona Area Education Foundation (VAEF) is once again coordinating the City Banner Art Project to recognize the unique talents of student artists while also beautifying our City. For the past two years, VAEF has partnered with the City of Verona to create and install street pole banners downtown and on Verona Avenue. For 2019, a total of 40 banners will be installed on East Verona Avenue to replace the previous weathered banners. The winning banners will also be compiled into a 12-month wall calendar available to purchase. Proceeds from the calendar help fund the VAEF grant program which benefits VASD students and teachers across the district.


Students interested in submitting a piece of work should click here to download instructional and delivery guidelines. 

The banner theme is ‘Hometown USA - A City for All Seasons’. What do you love about your community throughout the four seasons? Imagine what you can do in all the seasons here in Verona! Students are encouraged to create works of art that reflect or symbolize elements of the community that inspire them. Works can be created in any medium (i.e. paint, chalk, photography, ceramics, fiber art, etc.)

Submit your artwork to your school office by end of day on Friday, January 4th 2019 or by dropping it off at the VASD District Office or the Verona or Fitchburg Public Libraries during regular operating hours between December 24th and January 4th.

Funds raised through the sale of the 12-month calendar will help the Education Foundation continue supporting grant requests by district staff for unique and innovative education opportunities for our students. To date, the foundation has awarded more than $100,000 in innovation grants to district classrooms.
