Student Call For Entries

Calling all student artists, memers, cartoonists, and digital artists, and photographers.

In recognition of Dyslexia and ADHD Awareness month, and ARTOBER, students in grades K-12 are invited to create a piece of art inspired by this year’s theme.

THEME: Reading gives me wings
When you are reading, does your imagination soar? Are you transported to a far off place? Do you get inspired by the characters in the story? Show us how reading gives you wings!

Approximately 1-in-5 students are impacted by a learning difference. Many students who struggle to learn build self-confidence through success in the arts. Whether you are among the 1-in-5 or want to show your support for fellow students, let your creativity speak out!

Artwork should not exceed 9”x12”
