Art contest underway for grades K-7

Arts in USC Student artists in kindergarten through grade seven are invited to submit artwork for the fifth annual Arts in USC contest, sponsored by the Upper St. Clair PTC. This year’s contest features two themes:

  • "A World of Understanding, A World of Compassion" for elementary students in kindergarten through fourth grade
  • “No Place for Hate,” coordinating with the schools’ efforts with the Anti-Defamation League, for middle school students in grades five through seven.

Students can create an original two-dimensional piece of art that expresses what "A World of Understanding, A World of Compassion" or “No Place for Hate” means to them. Artwork, along with the completed Official Student Entry Form, can be submitted to the student’s respective school office by Monday, March 2, 2020.

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, March 28, 2020, 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 seventh 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.
