Announcing the 2018 Art Contest

TAP is pleased to invite students to participate in our 2018 Annual International Art Contest. This contest is open to all students in elementary grades one through four, including students from private and public schools as well as home-schooled students.

Theme: Sharing Food and Culture

Have you ever eaten food from another country? Have you ever shared traditions that are different from the ones in your family? Our lives are enriched by contact with people from other cultures.

In a drawing or painting depict two or more people from different cultures or countries sharing their traditional foods with each other. The artwork must include a one-sentence description.

Artwork will be judged on originality of design, clarity of message, and artistic merit.

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

  • Group A—1st and 2nd grades, as of September 2018
  • Group B—3rd and 4th grades, as of September 2018

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.
