The 2020 theme is taken from the First Amendment..."Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." The entry deadline is February 17, 2020. Students in grades K-12 have an opportunity to share their talent through painting, drawing, mixed media, photography, or sculpture. Last year we awarded 18 students cash prizes totaling over $2000 (recipients were awarded between $10 and $500).
