Arts Festival competition is held in January each year for Pamlico County students in the fields of arts and crafts where first through third place ribbons are awarded as well as a small monetary amount going to the teacher of first place winners to help further the art education program. 
Youth and adults with disabilities are also offered the same awards in the Artfest, held at the same time as the Arts Festival.  First place monetary awards are given to the individual first place winners and all participants are recognized with a certificate.
