Magnet Schools of America (MSA) designates February 2022 as an opportunity to highlight and promote magnet schools across the country. MSA invites all magnet schools to plan special events and activities during February 2022 to celebrate the success of magnet schools, students, and staff.

To help celebration, Magnet Schools of America is sponsoring its 16th Annual National Magnet Schools Student Poster Contest, and invites entries from elementary, middle and high school magnets. Plan to enter this exciting and fun student-based project.

Students have the option to express/interpret just one of MSA’s pillars OR all five of MSA’s pillars:
