Youth Recycled Art Contest and Prize Details!
I’m so excited to announce a little project I’ve been working on lately…. and the best part is that your child can win a $250 savings account and a $250 for their school’s art program while having fun making art!
Texoma Community Credit Union (TCCU) and TexomaWithKids.com are hosting and sponsoring the first ever Youth Recycled Art Contest, in partnership with the Arts Alive! Home & Garden Festival at the MPEC on February 23 and 24, 2019!
We are calling on all K-12th grade students to create their very own work of art made out of recyclable or reused items. Students can make paintings, collage, sculptures, and more of any size and shape. Get creative! You can make anything you want!
The competition will be separated by two different age groups; K-5th and 6-12th grade. Art work will be exhibited throughout the Home & Garden Show, and will be judged on effective use of recycled/reused items, creativity and overall presentation.
There will be one winner for each of the two age groups. Each winner will receive a $250 savings account at TCCU and their school will also receive a $250 donation from TCCU to be used for their arts program.
(Note: If the winning child is in a homeschool program, the $250 donation would be given to the parent or guardian of the artist in the form of a gift card to Mardel Christian Bookstore, to be used for school supplies.)
Submissions can be brought to either branch of Texoma Community Credit Union between now and Thursday, February 21, or to the MPEC on Friday, February 22 between 3 and 5:30 pm.
Who’s ready to get creative?!??
To get the ideas flowing, we’ve created a Pinterest board of recycled art. Take a look!
