USAO's Spring Triad, a combination of the Montmartre Chalk Art Contest, the Droverstock music festival and the statewide high school Scholastic Meet, is scheduled April 2 on the USAO campus. Last year, more than 830 artists of all ages blanketed the university sidewalks with original artwork. Thousands of students of all ages are anticipated to participate in the day's events. The Spring Triad is open to the public.

Live music, colorful art, food booths, and academic excellence combine each spring at the University of Science and Arts in Chickasha for the Spring Triad. This year's events are scheduled April 2.

Combining the statewide high school Scholastic Meet, the Montmartre Chalk Art Contest and the Droverstock music festival, the Spring Triad is the largest one-day event each year on the USAO campus. Last year's activities drew more than 2,500 people.
