New York City Department of Education, in collaboration with Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, presents the 2016 Cover Design Competition.


The Cover Design Competition encourages participants to reflect on their lives as public school students in New York City and express their ideas artistically in the form of a cover design. The winning designs will be featured on Department of Education school directories, which are distributed to thousands of students and their families across New York City. This competition is an opportunity for students to showcase their artistic talents and be recognized for their creativity.

Thank you to all who participated in the Cover Design Competition! The competition has ended—see the winning designs for 2016!
