Announcing the BOLT 2021 Arts Festival!

May 24-28, 2021

Join us this spring in honoring students and in lifting up their voices through a celebration of the arts!

Pegasus Springs is pleased to announce the virtual BOLT 2021 Arts Festival! Students ages 6-18 are invited to submit art and/or performance videos within a wide-range of categories—including drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, mosaic, theater, dance, music, poetry, story, monologue, film, and more. (See all the categories below.) 

Pegasus Springs believes that students must be key collaborators in all education’s efforts. Their experiences and aspirations are critical as we navigate toward the future, and our Building Our Leaders of Tomorrow (BOLT) program is committed to empowering student voice and agency. Through our BOLT content and programming, our goal is to provide platforms for students to express their perspectives and experiences to both develop and demonstrate their talents. 

This last year has been especially challenging, and we know that students have a lot on their minds. The arts provide such a powerful platform for expressing our voice, individuality, and creativity. 

Be a Part of the Festival!
