(4/19) The Emmitsburg Town Commissioners
have announced the details for the 2007 Emmitsburg Art Competition.
“It gets kids involved in the community
and has them focus on the community while they are using their imagination,”
said Commissioner Bill O’Neil.
The contest is open to K-12 students who
live in Emmitsburg or attend school in Emmitsburg. Students can use
watercolors, oils, pastels, acrylic paints, pen and ink, charcoal, colored
pencils, crayons, mixed media, ceramic or sculpture to create the artwork. The
piece must be done by the artist without adult help.
The entries will be judged on originality,
composition and theme interpretation in three divisions: K-3, 4-7, 8-12.
First-place winners in each division will win a $1,000 savings bond.
Second-place winners will receive a $500 savings bond. Third-place winners will
receive a $200 savings bond and up to 10 people will receive honorable mention
awards along with a $100 savings bond.
There is no cost to enter but entries must
be in the Emmitsburg town office by 4 p.m. on May 31. Winners will be announced
at the 2007 Emmitsburg Community Day and displayed in the commissioners’
meeting room for a year.
Entry forms can be picked up at the town
office. For more details, call (301) 600-6300.
