Children’s Art Contest

This Year’s Theme: “Holiday Wishes”

The Children’s Holiday Art Contest benefits art education in local schools. Portland/Vancouver metro area elementary school classes (grades 3-5) are asked to paint a greeting card mural. This year, the entries will be displayed onsite at Winter Wonderland AND online where visitors can vote to select their top entry. The school receiving the most votes will receive a cash prize for their efforts! Your school’s success is impacted by your efforts to spread awareness about the contest and encourage parents and families to vote online!

Details regarding the 2018 art contest coming soon!

Vote for your favorite mural here!

For questions please contact:

The children’s creativity is rewarded with grant money based on the number of votes received. Our only request is that the funds are spent on art related supplies, projects, or field trips. The Sunshine Division provides prize money to the winning schools.
