Polk County’s K-12 student dancers, poets, and artists of all stripes put on an incredible show for this year’s PlatformKids. Thank you for your support!

PlatformKids is an annual showcase of K-12 student art and performance. Along with the Polk County Public Schools Department of Fine Arts, and with very generous support from the GiveWell Foundation, we work with art teachers from public, private, charter, magnet, and home schools across Polk County. Platform starts planning months in advance, reaching out to art teachers for student artwork. All artwork submitted is accepted, which means a wider range of students having space and opportunity to show their work in the public realm.
