KIDS’ ART CONTEST


KIDS . . . DO YOU LIKE ART AND HISTORY? HERE IS AN ART CONTEST FOR GRADES KINDERGARTEN – 12 WITH AN ADDED CATEGORY FOR FAMILIES

⁕ Use any medium to create an image of something really old in West Bloomfield, North Bloomfield, or Ionia. It might be a home, a church, a door, or a fencepost – anything that tells a story. You do not need to live in West Bloomfield, but your image must show something historic in the town.




⁕ Learn about the story behind your image and write a few lines to tell it in your own words. Look in a book or online, interview an adult, or visit the Historical Society. Find information at our website www.wbhsny.com or use the site to ask the historian a question.
⁕ Turn in your art, writing, and information sheet by Wed., Oct. 11 at the public library in Bloomfield, Lima, Honeoye Falls, Allens Hill, or Honeoye. If you are a Bloomfield CSD student, you may leave it at the office. You will receive an invitation to an exhibit - awards party for all the artists!

Contest Categories: Grades K-3…4-6…7-9…10-12…Family (adults & kids working together). On your information sheet, write your name, grade and school, your mailing address, phone number, and email.
