Holiday Card Contest

The architects of Garden Springs Elementary School have created an art contest for GSE students. Students are to draw what GSE would look like if decorated for the holidays. Students can draw the outside of the school or an inside area, but it must be full of holiday decorations. The artwork should be fully colored. The architects will decide the winning artwork and award a gift certificate to the winning student! The design will be the cover of their holiday card this season. Please turn in artworks to Mr. Yeary by November 2.

This page will feature opportunities for contests in the arts for the 2016-17 school year.

PTA Reflections Contest

The theme this year for the PTA Reflections Contest is: “What’s Your Story.” All submitted artworks should be based on this theme. Submissions can be made in 6 categories: visual arts, film production, musical composition, dance choreography, photography and literature. All entries are due by Friday October 28 to the classroom teacher or Mr. Yeary.
