Community Education announces annual U.S. Bank art competition for students
(Bowling Green, KY) Community Education and U.S. Bank invite students in Bowling Green and Warren County to participate in the annual U.S. Bank Young Artists’ Competition.
This year’s theme is “Imaginary Places”. Warren County students in kindergarten through seniors in high school are encouraged to let their artwork show who they are, what they think about, dream about, or can imagine.
The winners will each receive $50 VISA gift cards from U.S. Bank. The original winning artworks will be displayed at the Warren County Public Library’s Smiths Grove branch from May 12th – June 30th and then at the Kirby branch for the month of July.
The official call for entries and entry forms have been sent to art teachers in all public and private schools in Warren County. This information is also available on the Community Education website, www.commed.us (click the Events pull-down tab) and on their Facebook and Twitter accounts. All artwork must be turned into Community Education by Wednesday, March 25 by 4 p.m. Parents/guardians can turn in their student’s artwork individually or you can collect them and turn them in as a group.
“We appreciate U.S. Bank for once again supporting the creative expression of the area’s students,” said Bill Oldham, Executive Director at Community Education. In addition to prizes for the winning entries, the teacher with the most qualifying entries will also receive a prize and recognition. “We would love to have artwork from every Warren County and Bowling Green city school,” Oldham said. The competition is also open to homeschooled students.
