The annual Youth Art Contest will be held during Art in our Park at the Zumbrota Area Art Council’s (ZAAC) booth on Saturday, June 16 and Sunday, June 17, 2018 during Zumbrota’s Covered Bridge Music and Arts Festival.
Artwork can be dropped off at Flowers On Main (345 S. Main St., Zumbrota, MN, 507-732-5599) during business hours or by arranging for pick-up by calling Candy at 507-843-4320.
The youth art will be displayed in the ZAAC booth at Art in our Park on June 16 from 10 a.m – 4 p.m. and June 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Three local art judges will assess the art and determine award winners. The art will also be judged by the public who pass through the ZAAC booth to determine a People’s Choice Award winner. The monetary rewards will be: Pre-k through grade 4, $25; grades 5-8, $50; grades 9-12, $50, and the People’s Choice Award – $75. A single artist may win two prizes, one in their grade category plus the People’s Choice Award.
After the People’s Choice Award votes are counted at the end of the Festival and the winner is determined, the winner’s artwork will be pictured on the publicity for next year’s Covered Bridge Music and Arts Festival. The publicity includes posters, newspaper advertisements, and postcards.
All award winners will have their artwork and their picture submitted to area newspapers to be published.
Please include an application with each entry- youth artists can submit 3 pieces of art.
