Botetourt County Libraries host art contest
ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Botetourt County Libraries wants to see your kids get creative, and they have extra time to do it.
The Library System is hosting its Fourth Annual Youth Art Contest, with a new deadline.
This year’s theme is Self-Portrait and students can submit one piece of artwork in any format or medium, it just cannot be any bigger than a standard poster board (22″ x 28″).
Anyone from kindergarten to twelfth grade can enter for the chance to win a cash prize.
“We put together a panel of five judges, we have a list of criteria and they are going to be rating all of the artwork and an average overall score is how we are going to be awarding the prizes this year,” Eagle Rock Branch Manager Jaime Duval said.
Submissions were due by September 30, but the contest has been extended to October 31, and then the artwork will be put on display in restaurants throughout the county during the month of October.
