Seeking Student Performing Artists for Special Observances

In April 2022, the U.S. Department of Education issued a “call” across the United States and its territories for student performing artists interested in showcasing their talent, virtually or in-person, at internal and external Department-hosted events.

We have received many talent submissions from across the country and are now seeking specific talent to support National Disability Employment Awareness Month (October), National Native American Indian/Alaska Native Month (November), and the following Special Emphasis Observances implemented by Presidential Proclamation, Executive Orders (White House Initiatives) and Public Law:

  • January- Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday
  • February- African American History Month
  • March- Women's History Month
  • April- Holocaust Remembrance Day
  • May- Jewish American Heritage Month & Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month
  • June- Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Pride Month
  • August- Women's Equality Day
  • September - National Hispanic Heritage Month
  • October- National Disability Employment Awareness Month
  • November- National Native American Indian/Alaska Native Heritage Month

Responses to this call are voluntary and will provide the Department with a repository of student talent that may be matched to specific events that amplify the mission and initiatives of the Department.

Please utilize this link for additional information that includes Frequently Asked Questions, submission instructions, and other related guidance. 

If you require a reasonable accommodation to complete your submission and/or answer any related questions, please email
