iN Education is a youth development organization. Eight seasons ago, in 2016, we hosted our inaugural Battle of the Teal art showcase in the Masonic Temple in Cleveland, Ohio. Since then, several other winners have pursued their higher education dreams. Over the years, we impacted over 10,000 artists across nine Ohio counties and raised over $40,000 in showcase awards, scholarships, and prizes for showcase winners and participants.



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 our accountability partners; Cleveland Foundation, Peg’s Foundation, Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, Community Foundation of Lorain County, ioby, Synthomer Foundation (formerly known as Omnova Solutions Foundation), Orr Family Foundation, Proficient Pro, LLC, and all our donors and supporters.
