Illinois art contest asks students to explore their visions of home
“Home” means something a little different to each person.
Illinois students get to explore their visions of home in the annual statewide art contest sponsored by the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum and the Illinois State Board of Education.
Students have until January 12 to submit entries on the theme of “Home is …”
The contest asks children from kindergarten through high school to interpret the theme however they want in two-dimensional art, such as a drawing, painting or collage.
The winners will be announced March 13 to commemorate Arts Education Week.
All winners and runners-up will have their work displayed by the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum for the rest of the year, and the artwork chosen as “best of show” will be used on a poster sent to schools to celebrate Arts Education Week.
Contest submissions may be up to 14 inches by 11 inches. They cannot feature copyrighted characters such as Batman.
