Student Art Competition Returns for Second Year

art competition
This fall the College of Education will host its annual Student Art Competition to help further youth interest in the arts, as well as reach out to the San Diego community.

Sponsored by both the SDSU College of Education and the Tony and Alicia Gwynn Foundation, the contest is open to all San Diego County residents who are currently enrolled in grades K-12. The goal of the contest is to encourage students, teachers, and parents to explore modern and contemporary art together.

Schools will be individually invited to participate in the competition, which will be taking place on December 12th on the SDSU campus in Montezuma Hall. Each art piece will embody the theme of “Education For All” in the form of a painting, sculpture, photography, or anything else that a student’s mind can conjure up.

The top three winners in each competition division will receive a medal and gift certificates for $100, $75, and $50, respectively. Students should submit their artwork on or before November 15th, and finalists will be announced on November 30th. Students will be tasked with not only designing the artwork, but also showcasing their motivations and inspirations for their particular piece of art.

With four competition divisions separated by age range categories, the possibilities of creative expression are endless. Any student, parent, or teacher who wishes to know more can visit the College of Education's Art Competition website.
