Once again, WDSE-WRPT is sponsoring our successful Authors and Artists Contest and we are hoping that your second through fifth graders will be part of the excitement.
The topic for this year's poster contest is "Illustrate a day or event that you will always remember." In one or two sentences, describe that day or event on the front or back of the poster.
We encourage all classroom and art teachers to make this an assignment, giving their students a chance to win scholarship prizes to be awarded at each grade level: $150 for all First Place winners, $100 for all Second Place winners, $75 for all Third Place winners and $25 for all Honorable Mention winners.
There are no restrictions on media (ink, colored pencil, markers, paint, paper, craft supplies etc.) but the work must be dry and stackable when submitted. Each entry must be original and not exceed the borders of an 11 X 17 poster. Entries must be marked on the back with the student's name, school, teacher and grade.
The deadline for poster submissions is December 5, 2014. Because so many schools and students will be participating, we ask teachers, with the help of their students, to choose the best 5 posters from each classroom for submission.
Our past winners have come from regional public, parochial, charter, and home schools and we hope that some of your students will be displaying their creativity at our March Awards event. We would appreciate your passing this information on to classroom and art teachers at a staff meeting or in a staff email.
If you have questions about the contest, please contact Kathy Clark at 218-724-5147 or at
email@example.com. We will be in touch!
