The Art Contest

This contest was open to all students in elementary grades one through four, including students from private and public schools as well as home-schooled students.

Theme: Games Around the World

Our lives are enriched by contact with other people and cultures. Games and sports can be common activities that bring people from different cultural backgrounds together.

In a drawing or painting, show children from different cultures playing a game or sport together. It could be from your own cultural background or someone else's.

The subject of the artwork entry is to be a personal expression of "Games Around the World." Artwork will be judged on originality of design, clarity of theme message, and artistic merit.

Participation: Entrants will be divided into two groups by grade:

  • Group A—1st and 2nd grades, as of September 2015
  • Group B—3rd and 4th grades, as of September 2015

Prizes: There will be two prizes in each group:

  • First place: $150
  • Second place: $100
  • (Prizes of comparable value will be awarded for those who reside outside of the United States.)

Entry Requirements:

  • Only one piece per student.
  • Entry may be a painting, drawing, collage, or other 2-dimensional work only.
  • Only digital files will be accepted; photos or scanned images of artwork must be submitted in jpeg format (high resolution). Files may be emailed or sent on CD. We will not accept hard copies of artwork.
