Fine Arts Competition

March 5-6, 2015

Register Now

The West Coast Baptist Fine Arts Competition was started in 1995 to help students develop their talents and sharpen their skills for the Lord. Since that time our goal has been to glorify Christ by providing an opportunity for students to compete in dozens of areas including Bible preaching, Bible teaching, music, academics, and speech. Each area of competition has been carefully planned to help prepare students’ minds and abilities for a life of service to Christ. This event also provides students a time to fellowship with other students in a Christ-honoring environment. The West Coast Baptist Fine Arts Competition has the potential to help your students develop a closer relationship with God and foster school spirit. Join the growing number of schools who are discovering this great tool to use in assisting students to reach their potential.
