All State


All State Awards Powerpoint

All-State 2014 Winners were honored at the All-State Awards on May 3rd, 2014 at the Des Moines Art Center. Winners received a poster featuring their portfolio work, a plaque for themselves and a plaque for their school. Winners are also eligible for scholarships from the Creative Center in Omaha and the Kansas City Art Institute.

If you have photos from the ceremony day, please share them with the webmaster or someone from the All-State Committee!

Student Scores
Student Scores are now available on their portals. If students have forgotten their password, they will need to click the link under the username and password fields and follow the instructions to reset it.

Underneath each portfolio slide will be a box with two columns. One indicates the judge. Each judge is given a random number: 2179, 2177, 2178, and 2181. They are not always in the same order so you will want to check the number to make sure you are comparing scores for the same judge. Judges scored work on a scale of 5 to 10 with the option to give a score of 0 for work that violated the rules of the contest or copyright.

At the bottom of your portal is a box for the scores for your essay. The judge numbers are the same. (Ex: Judge 2181 for slides is the same person as Judge 2181 for writing.) Each part of the essay was graded on a scale from 1-5. Each column indicates a different essay.

Questions for students to consider:
Based on feedback what was my best slide?
Based on judges feedback, what was my worst slide?
Which judge tended to give the highest scores?
Which judge tended to give the lowest scores?

Congratulations and Thank You to All Nominees and Nominating Art Educators

The Allstate Committee  are pleased to announce this years top portfolios.
