STUDENT ART CONTEST
SUBMIT ORIGINAL ARTWORK
PRESENTED WITH DC ARTS & HUMANITIES EDUCATION COLLABORATIVE
The National Cherry Blossom Festival celebrates the legacy of a “kind act” that occurred over 100 years ago and lives on through annual events and programs. As part of the annual festivities we invite students from DC public and public charter schools in grades K through 12 to participate in the Youth Art Contest. Schools in every DC Ward participate; with an overwhelming majority of those schools being considered Title 1 schools, or schools serving high numbers of economically disadvantaged children. This year students create artwork that tells their “Home is where the Blossoms are” story—what they look forward to when spring rolls around and what the cherry blossoms mean to their community—via symbols, murals, physical trees and icons, thinking of how to express their thoughts in the framework of a their own backyard.
