The deadline for submission of artwork for the Garden City Historical Society’s sixth annual Juried Children’s Art Contest, “A Tribute to St. Paul’s,” is March 18.
The contest is open to Garden City students in grades kindergarten through 12, and all artwork must illustrate an aspect of St. Paul’s School.
Drawings must be created in pencil, color pencil or pen and ink, and artwork must not exceed 18 by 24 inches, including matting. The contest has four categories: K-1, Grades 2 through 5, Middle School, and High School. Photography/computer graphics will be a separate category for high school students only.
The contest will be judged by local residents with art backgrounds. Awards will be presented to first place, second place and honorable mention winners in each category.
The Historical Society will host a reception for the winning artists and their families on April 3 at The Garden City Historical Society Museum, 109 Eleventh Street. Awards will be presented at that time. The exhibit, which includes all entries, will be open to the public at the Museum on April 3 and April 9-10, from 1 to 3 p.m.
This year’s contest is partially underwritten by The Donnelly Group (a Ferrucci Partnership, 730 Franklin Avenue), Ryan Patrick Donnelly, president and managing partner.
