Kids Tag Art
Since 2012, the Marion County Tax Collector’s office has partnered with the Marion County Public School’s elementary art teachers to offer this unique program. Kids Tag Art inspires our students’ creative abilities by allowing them to design their own license plate. Each participating school earns 100% of the proceeds from sales, plus a share of sponsorship money which is donated to our elementary art programs.
Each participating school chooses their top five works of art, and of those, two are selected by a committee of judges as Awards of Distinction. The two Awards of Distinction students are honored in an awards ceremony attended by families, teachers, administrators, and the sponsors. At the ceremony, the sponsors announce their Choice Awards.
All of the Awards of Distinction tags are displayed at the Appleton Museum the week after the awards ceremony.
