Art contest underway for grades K-6

Arts in USC Student artists in kindergarten through grade 6 are invited to submit artwork for the fourth annual Arts in USC contest, sponsored by the Upper St. Clair PTC. This year’s theme is "The Power of Kindness."

Students can create an original 2D piece of art that expresses what " The Power of Kindness" means to them. Artwork, along with the completed Official Student Entry Form, can be submitted to the student’s respective school office by Friday, March 1, 2019.

Artwork should be no bigger than standard letter-sized paper (8½” X11”). The student’s name, school and grade should be included on the backside of the artwork.

All entries will be displayed at the Arts & Chocolate Spring Spectacular on Saturday, April 6, 2019, at the Community & Recreation Center at Boyce Mayview Park.

The mission of the Arts in USC contest is to bring opportunities of artistic expression to all students in kindergarten through grade 12, while making it possible for students to have a contest experience. Kindergarten through sixth grade students have the opportunity to submit artwork to this in-house competition, which is judged at each grade level within each school. First place artwork for each elementary grade advances to district-wide judging.

Students in grades seven through 12 have the opportunity to participate in the national Scholastic Art & Writing Competition. To encourage participation, the USC PTC helps to defray the cost of student submissions.
