School Arts magazine has announced the 2016 Advocacy Poster Contest and Advocacy Bumper Sticker Contest, and I want to share it with you!
Grades 9-12 are invited to design posters based on the theme "How Does Art Unite Us?", and elementary (grades K-5) and middle school students (grades 6-8) will design bumper stickers based on the same theme.
All entries are due on November 18, and you can find complete contest rules and all other pertinent information RIGHT HERE.
My students can't enter, because I teach currently in an independently run art enrichment program, but if I was still in the school classroom, this would definitely be a worthwhile contest to encourage student participation.
