A commitment of 15-20 hours a week of combined on-site office hours and off-site event assistance is expected.

Calling all APS creatives! WonderRoot hosts an annual art exhibition that showcases the range of artistic talent of APS high school students. We seek art submissions that depict messages of self-empowerment, community and positive social change in various mediums.  Youth today have undoubtedly infiltrated social justice movements, transforming the voice of activism. They are frustrated by the injustices they see in their own country, and they are moved in solidarity by injustices around the world. This exhibit will feature the poignant work of APS high school students through posters, visual calls to action and mixed-media work. The size limitation of all artwork is 18"x24"  


The opening reception is on November 1st at Mason Fine Arts, and the exhibition will run until November 15th. The deadline to apply is Friday, October 5th at 11:59 pm. Selected students will be chosen by a panel of esteemed local artists and arts professionals and will be notified by October 12th.  This year we named the exhibition after a student protest sign that read "I am more than a test score." We at WonderRoot believe that the young creatives of Atlanta area high schools have just as much potential and insight into the creative, social, and political climates of today. More Than a Score invites young up-and-coming visual influencers to join the ranks of Atlanta‚Äôs arts community in this well-anticipated exhibition.


Prizes will be given to students in the categories of WonderRoot Student Prize, Audience Choice Award, and Student Choice Award. Winner of the WonderRoot Student Prize will have their artwork turned into a single color screen print and have their image showcased as part of WonderRoot's Activist Screen Print Studio, which will be available to the public to print at WonderRoot.  

Students are strongly encouraged to create visually exciting poster designs for the exhibition; however, all artistic mediums will be accepted for consideration. 

WonderRoot is also looking for students to participate in exhibition programming, such as slam poetry, live readings or musical performances. This exhibition is only open to Atlanta Public School students in grades 9-12.
