IN EDUCATION’s Battle of the Teal program is made possible in part by state tax dollars allocated by the Ohio Legislature to the Ohio Arts Council (OAC). The OAC is a state agency that funds and supports quality arts experiences to strengthen Ohio communities culturally, educationally, and economically.

We would also like to acknowledge Synthomer Foundation (formerly known as Omnova Solutions Foundation), Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, Community Foundation of Lorain County, all our donors, and accountability partners of IN EDUCATION’s Battle of the Teal art program.

The Battle of the Teal’s Impact

IN EDUCATION’s Battle of the Teal is in its eighth season! Since our first showcase hosted in 2016, we were able to impact over 10,000 artists across seven Ohio counties. Over the years, 50 active artists and art professionals who joined the adjudication panel provided portfolio feedback for all showcase participants. Besides fun family activities, workshops, and other art-related events, our team raised over $33,000 in showcase awards, scholarships, and prizes for showcase winners and participants. It remains a free service [showcase] for K-12 students across Ohio!
