Plans are underway, and entry deadlines have been announced for the yearly creative arts contest.
Rules and entry form are available at www.swtjc.edu. The entry deadline for literary and visual arts is 5 p.m., Wednesday, March 23. ENTRY FORM
Cash prizes, trophies, and medals will be awarded in the annual event, which attracts thousands of art, photography and writing entries from across the region.
Trophies and medals will be awarded to first through fourth place in all age groups and categories. Judges will also select an overall literary and visual arts winner in each age group. Cash prizes of $20 will be presented to overall winners.
Age divisions will be the same as last year and will include: Pre-K and Kindergarten, grades 1-2, grades 3-4, grades 5-6, grades 7-8, grades 9-10, grades 11-12, college and community.
The SWTJC Arts and Sciences Division and the SWTJC Public Information Office coordinate the annual event.
“The college has a strong commitment to supporting and promoting the creative arts, and we look forward to another year of outstanding entries,” said Cheryl Sanchez, dean of the college of liberal arts.
Sanchez encourages all area English and language arts teachers in public and private schools, as well as home school teachers, to have their students to enter the contest.
“We know the demands on teachers are enormous, but this doesn’t have to be work written specifically for the contest,” Sanchez said. “I encourage teachers to get their top writers to submit entries from their best efforts during the school year, even if they were turned in last fall.”
If you have any questions please stop by the office to schedule your exam date or pick up your schedule.
