Art Contest

“Every child is an artist” — Pablo Picasso

PalmettoPride knows that South Carolina students are creative and care about the environment. Our annual art contest is available to any South Carolina K-5th grade teachers or educational groups to participate in this fun and educational competition. Students will need to create artwork themed around Litter Trashes Everyone, on the paper provided by PalmettoPride. The winning artwork will become the design for our new t-shirt.

Here is what you will need to do to participate:
1. Complete the application at the link provided below.
2. We will send you our official Litter Trashes Everyone paper to use and a self-addressed return envelope to send your artwork in.
**As an effort to reduce our waste we will phase out the return envelope for sending in artwork, this will be the last year we provide the return envelope. Future contests will only allow for artwork to be submitted online.**
3. Your school is required to judge all the participating students’ artwork and select one student to represent your school or class.
4. Submit your winning entry to PalmettoPride online through this link or postmarked by deadline date.

All elementary school entries will be judged by PalmettoPride’s guest judges to select the four (4) regional winners (Lowcountry, Midlands, Update and Pee Dee) and (1) statewide winner.

PalmettoPride will supply 14 X 8.5 sheets of paper to teachers who wish to participate once this application is received. Entries must be drawn on the sheets provided by PalmettoPride. Any medium will be accepted. Five (5) color maximum allowed. Images/ photographs of the student’s work may be featured on our various social media outlets and promotional material. Stay tuned for details on next year’s art contest.
