The Washington Arts Education Association sponsors an annual event that provides an opportunity for students to design a flag representing and in celebration of the arts; dance, music, theatre, and visual arts. The submission chosen for this year's flag was created by a student from Glacier Peak High School in Snohomish, WA. The student along with her teacher, will be honored at the Annual Superintendent’s High School Art Show and her flag will remain on display at OSPI. See this year's YAM flag.
