Teen Art Contest

Siouxland Libraries invites teens to submit original artwork for its 2018 Teen Art Contest. Teens may submit artwork in any medium on any subject. Please keep in mind that content must be rated “G” in order to be accepted.

To enter: Fill out the entry form and submit a photo or digital copy of the artwork (JPEG, PNG, or PDF) by Friday, June 1. Photos and entry forms may also be submitted in person at any Siouxland Libraries branch. Submissions without an entry form will not be accepted. When submitting the form on the website, you will receive an email with a link to upload a picture of your artwork. You will receive this email within 1-2 days of submitting your initial application.

Art Show: All who submit artwork are invited to showcase their work at the Teen Art Show on Tuesday, June 12 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. at Ronning Branch Library. Artists are responsible for bringing their own display materials (such as easels, frames, pedestals, etc.). Tables will be provided. In the description portion of the entry form, please include dimensions of your artwork and list any display materials that will be brought so that organizers can arrange the appropriate space for each submission.

Awards: Winners will be announced at the Teen Art Show. First-, second- and third-place winners will be selected from three age groups: 6th-8th grade, 9th-10th grade, and 11th-12th grade. Winners will be determined by a panel of local artists. Artists do not have to be present at the show to win.

 First-place winners will each receive a $50 gift certificate from JAM Art & Supplies, along with a feature on their blog. Second- and third-place winners will each receive $25 gift certificates from JAM Art & Supplies. 

Artists who attend the show will have their name entered into a drawing for door prizes, including two tickets to Wild Water West.

If you would like to participate, but are unable to access art supplies or display materials, please contact Monica at 605-582-2390 or mnewton@siouxfalls.org for more information.
