The JM Creative Arts and Writing Contest provides students with an opportunity to display and share their creative efforts. It also offers the school and the community a way to promote art, music, and creative writing education and appreciation, while recognizing and rewarding students for their efforts and high-quality creative work. The contest, which occurs in the spring, is open to all Joaquin Moraga students and is sponsored by the JM PTA.
