Hi students. I’m sure you have mounds of artwork that you’ve created over the last few weeks. Well, guess what? You can now use your artwork to earn cold, hard cash-equivalent Target gift cards (plus a subscription to the Chicago Sun-Times).
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, here are the deets…
“Over the course of the next three weeks, we’re inviting Chicago-area elementary, middle and high school students to submit their best visual creations to our new art contest.
Because we are all looking for reasons to smile, the theme of the first season of The Imagination Project is Brighter Days. We invite you to submit your art now.
Here are a few important details:
- In this first iteration of The Imagination Project, we’re welcoming drawings, paintings and digital designs — but stay tuned for more categories in the future.
- Entrants must be students in the Chicago-area (city or suburbs).
- You must have a parent fill out your submission form.
- Each young artist can submit up to 5 pieces of art.
- We’ll have prizes for winning elementary, middle and high school students!
Submit your art, win a $20 Target gift card. Glorious art careers have started on less. Did you know that Paul Cézanne won his first art contest in the 5th-grade? It’s true. He won a half-eaten baguette, a shoelace, and a subscription to the Chicago Sun-Times.
