Artists from middle school and high school are invited to submit original artwork for the 70th Representative District Art Appreciation Contest. One entry in each division will be selected and placed on display in the State Capital this spring. Submissions will be accepted through April 21st at State Representative Bob Pritchard’s Sycamore office, 2600 DeKalb Avenue, Sycamore, IL 60178.
Representative Pritchard (R-Hinckley) began the program several years ago to show off the creativity of area students and give them an opportunity to display their work in the state capitol. “Supporting and encouraging artistic expression in students of all ages is an important aspect of educational development,” said Pritchard, who enjoys the creative variety of the submissions every year.
With various mediums of artwork accepted, artists have freedom to create meaningful and original pieces. There is no theme or limitation on the creativity. More details on the contest guidelines and requirements as well as the submission form that must accompany art entries can be found here.
